Guess you could divide 185 by 6. Does that help?

IsTim is right. In order to simplify this ratio you have to divide both sides by six so it gives you a 1:x ratio. Also when I click that link it goes to a geometry book...page 338 is about trapezoids..

Raspberry is correct.

A funny one you are. Have you looked through the provided examples? Those help me when I do these questions.
raspberryjam
  • raspberryjam
That question isn't multiple choice. So you should just simplify it like IsTim and I mentioned above and you should get the right answer.
IsTim
  • IsTim
Actually, it doesn't seem that the examples are provided...

  • anonymous
yeah i did but im confused,,,,,,,,,
IsTim
  • IsTim
I'm confused on this matter too...
raspberryjam
  • raspberryjam
Selena what are you confused about?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@ras my teacher provides the multiple choice to them
IsTim
  • IsTim
Well, both of my ways to get ratios isn't working here.
IsTim
  • IsTim
1. Add up the values, and then divide then by a provided number to get one side. Subtract that divided number from the total, and apply to other side. 2. Divide both sides by a number so that the value of the lowest number becomes 1.
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do you do that with a number like 6
anonymous
  • anonymous
besides all of the answer options are highter than 185
anonymous
  • anonymous

raspberryjam
  • raspberryjam
You divide both sides by 6. So then the ratio becomes 1:185/6. I don't think your teacher gave the right multiple choice answers in this case. Are you positive they go with this question?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, im positive
raspberryjam
  • raspberryjam
OH I KNOW WHY. It is because it is in inches. So you should convert 6 inches to feet first.
anonymous
  • anonymous
OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
anonymous
  • anonymous
How do i do that?
raspberryjam
  • raspberryjam
Well how many inches are in a foot?
anonymous
  • anonymous
12
IsTim
  • IsTim
I feel so stupid now.
raspberryjam
  • raspberryjam
So then 6/12 = ? Then you should divide both sides of the ratio by the smallest number.
anonymous
  • anonymous
2 ft?
raspberryjam
  • raspberryjam
No, 6 divided by 12.
anonymous
  • anonymous
0.5?
raspberryjam
  • raspberryjam
Yep, so then what is your ratio? It should be the height of tower:height of model tower.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so C?
raspberryjam
  • raspberryjam
Yep you got it!
anonymous
  • anonymous
phew, okay thanks
