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

12*2/3 x 24*2/3

- anonymous

But I did that ang got 8/16?

- amistre64

i get 8 x 16

- anonymous

But it is not 8 by 16

- PaxPolaris

No the brand version is bigger

- Hero

8 x 16 = 8 by 16

- amistre64

then your question is bad

- amistre64

or i read it wrong ....

- amistre64

G(x,y) = 2/3 B(x,y)
G(12,24) = 2/3 B(x,y)

- amistre64

so, 12*3/2 x 24*3/2

- Hero

It doesn't really specify if the brand name was 2/3 bigger or 2/3 smaller

- Hero

By default, I would assume 2/3 smaller

- amistre64

G = 2/3 B is specific enough tho

- anonymous

you multiply both linear dimensions by 3/2 to get the dimensions of the brand name tv

- anonymous

I know! Thats what I assumed as well.

- PaxPolaris

if L x W are the dimensions of the brand version:\[L \times \frac23=24\] \[W \times \frac23=12\]

- amistre64

The dimensions given are the Generic; not the Brand

- anonymous

correct, pax

- Hero

Yeah, I see now. I get it.

- Hero

I can see how someone could easily confuse the question though.

- anonymous

So would I just multiply each value by 3/2?

- anonymous

yep

- anonymous

Gotcha!

- Hero

Qwerty, the key is being able to read and understand the question

- anonymous

Yes I understand that Hero.

Here's the way the question should have been written if you get rid of the unnecessary info.

- 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

Thanks guys! I got a 100!

- Hero

good job
