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

    8 x 16 = 8 by 16

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

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

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

    By default, I would assume 2/3 smaller

    G = 2/3 B is specific enough tho

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

    I know! Thats what I assumed as well.

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

    The dimensions given are the Generic; not the Brand

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

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

    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.

    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.
