A photo is 6 inches long. Kamala enlarged the photo so that it is inches long. By keeping the same proportion of the photo, what would be the width of the photo if the enlarged photo is 8 inches wide?

Was something left out in the question? "Kamala enlarged the photo so that it is inches long." Between is and inches.

The scale factor from the original photograph to the enlarged one is 6 to 12 or 1 to 2. No surprise, there, that the length was doubled.

To keep the same proportion, you would double the original width. So, if the enlarged photo has width 8, then the original photo has width _?_

Nobody is looking. What do you think the original width is?

Guess. If it is wrong, you can delete the guess.

To decide that, would it be true to say 6/12 = 16/8 ? You have the concept right but it's going in the opposite direction.

6/12 = 1/2 but 16/8 = 2/1.

So, now, look at this: 6/12 = ? / 8. What over 8 = 6/12. Note that 6/12 = 1/2 so ?/8 should equal 1/2. Try again.

Right, see you knew all the time. Now, let's look back on our work.

The original photo length went from 6 to 12. The original photo width went from 4 to 8. So, both measurements doubled. Agree?
