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?

like if generic version is 2/3 size of brand version , hence we divide the generic versin size by 2/3
amistre64
  • amistre64
12*2/3 x 24*2/3

  • anonymous
But I did that ang got 8/16?
amistre64
  • amistre64
i get 8 x 16
anonymous
  • anonymous
But it is not 8 by 16
PaxPolaris
  • PaxPolaris
No the brand version is bigger
Hero
  • Hero
8 x 16 = 8 by 16
amistre64
  • amistre64
then your question is bad
amistre64
  • amistre64
or i read it wrong ....
amistre64
  • amistre64
G(x,y) = 2/3 B(x,y) G(12,24) = 2/3 B(x,y)
amistre64
  • amistre64
so, 12*3/2 x 24*3/2
Hero
  • Hero
It doesn't really specify if the brand name was 2/3 bigger or 2/3 smaller
Hero
  • Hero
By default, I would assume 2/3 smaller
amistre64
  • amistre64
G = 2/3 B is specific enough tho
anonymous
  • anonymous
you multiply both linear dimensions by 3/2 to get the dimensions of the brand name tv
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know! Thats what I assumed as well.
PaxPolaris
  • PaxPolaris
if L x W are the dimensions of the brand version:\[L \times \frac23=24\] \[W \times \frac23=12\]
amistre64
  • amistre64
The dimensions given are the Generic; not the Brand
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct, pax
Hero
  • Hero
Yeah, I see now. I get it.
Hero
  • Hero
I can see how someone could easily confuse the question though.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So would I just multiply each value by 3/2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
Gotcha!
Hero
  • Hero
Qwerty, the key is being able to read and understand the question
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes I understand that Hero.

Jason considered two similar televisions at a local electronics store. The generic version 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? Here's the way the question should have been written if you get rid of the unnecessary info.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks guys! I got a 100!
