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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2eh, 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?
