1. The official Canadian flag has a length to width ratio 2:1. Doreen has a sheet of paper that measures 30 cm by 20 cm. What are the length and width of the largest Canadian flag Doreen can draw? Sketch a picture of the flag.

    If you want the maximum flag, you gotta think about what side of the paper she can use up fully. Start with the larger side. Would a 30 cm x 15 cm flag be legal? YES! If we were dealing with 30 x 14 paper, it wouldn't be, and we'd have to think of a dimension where we could use up all the width instead (like 28 x 14). |dw:1349834307223:dw|
