Jason considered two similar televisions at a local electronics store. The generic version was based on the brand name and was three fourths 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? 18 inches by 36 inches 6 inches by 12 inches 16 inches by 32 inches 9 inches by 18 inches

The original TV was 12 by 24 inches; the generic name is 3/4 the size of the original

16 inches by 32 inches since the size is 3/4th hence alll sides are 3/4th. so (3/4)x=12inches (3/4)y=24inches so x=16, y=32

generic television set is 12 inches by 24 inches Which is 3/4 the size means it is smaller than the Brand Name. Do not multiply. That will make the Brand Name smaller when it is larger. You need to divide

Are you sure @nixy
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
Divide by .75 to increase the size
anonymous
  • anonymous
Don't you wanna decrease the size though? @nixy
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh wait, the generic one is 3/4 the size of the new one
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, we are trying to find the Brand Name, which the generic is 3/4 the size of the brand name, which means the generic is smaller than the brand name. To increase size, we need to divide
