Challenge! Ready? You want to draw an enlargement of a design that is printed on a card that is 4in. by 5in. You will be drawing this design on a piece of paper that is 81/2 in. by 11in. What are the dimensions of the largest complete enlargement you can make? Write out the answer so I, Lolly, know you are not cheating.

    eh, I'll give it a shot, assuming this isn't a trick question... if we match up the short sides together and the long sides together... (8.5 inches/4 inches) = 2.125, meaning that the ratio of the copy to the original sides is 2.125 2.125*(5 inches) = 10.625 inches for the copy so the final dimensions end up being 8 1/2 inches by 10 5/8 inches?
