Jason considered two similar televisions at a local electronics store. The generic version was based off the brand name and was 2/3 the size of the brand name. If the generic television set is 12 inches by 24 inches, what are the dimensions of the brand name television?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It doesn't really specify if the brand name was 2/3 bigger or 2/3 smaller

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1G = 2/3 B is specific enough tho

If the generic television set is 12 inches by 24 inches, what are the dimensions of the brand name television? Here's the way the question should have been written if you get rid of the unnecessary info.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes I got that. I know the generic television is 12 by 24 and I need to know the brand nme size if this is 2/3 of it.
