## anonymous one year ago The lengths of the sides of a rectangular window hae the ratio 1.6 to 1. The area of the window is 2822.4 in^2. What are the window's dimensions?

1.6 to 1 is equal to 1.6x:1x The equation is as follows: $1.6x \times1x =2822.4$ $1.6x =2822.4$ Divide both sides by 1.6 $x^{2} = 1764$ Now find the square root of both sides. $x =42$ Now lets find the side s by your ratio 1.6:1 $x=1.6\times42$ $x=1\times42$ height = 67.2 leangth =42
