A graphics printing company sells three different sizes of posters. They use all of a 36" by 36" posterboard and cut it into 3 pieces. The smallest is a square, and the largest one will have three times the area of the middle-sized one. What are the dimensions of the three sizes of posters?

What formula would you use or method? and what would you use to check your work i want to know this will help me get ready for my test this is a practice test said my teacher and he wants me to answer this in that way so i know what is going on. so if you can help me understand how you got that i would be happy.

Solve the following for x:\[\frac{36 (36-x)}{(36-x) x}=3 \]x = 12\[\left\{x^2,x (36-x),36 (36-x)\right\}\text{/.}\, x\to 12 \]\[\{144,288,864\} \]\[\frac{864}{288}=3 \]\[\text{Total}[\{144,288,864\}] = 1296\]

um one question can you simplify the solve for how you solved it? or do i have to leave it that way???
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[\frac{36 (36-x)}{(36-x) x}=3 \] The 36-x terms divide out leaving\[\frac{36}{x}=3 \] 3x = 36 x = 12

You bet.

and that is the solve not {x^2, x(36−x), 36(36−x)} /. x→12 {144,288,864} 864/288=3 Total [{144,288,864}]=1296 or is this the check?

  • AndrewKaiser333
if that is for the check is there a way to simplify this?

nvm i think i figured out a way to simplify it

{ x^2, x(36−x), 36(36−x) } /. x→12 The above statement is a computaional request statement for the computer program, Mathematica v9. { x^2, x(36−x), 36(36−x) } is a 3 element list of the area expressions for the square, small rectangle and large rectangle respectively. /. x→12 is a command to Mathematica to replace each x in the list expression with the value 12, and then evaluate and simplify the results. When finished, Mathematica returns the numerical results as a new 3 element list as shown below: {144, 288, 864} You can verify the above by using pencil and paper and your knowledge of arithmetic. Timing [ { x^2, x(36−x), 36(36−x) } /. x→12 ]

Timing is a way to calculate the elapsed time for Mathematica to process a statement. \[\left\{0.027404,\left\{x^2,(36-x) x,36 (36-x)\right\}\text{/.}\, x\rightarrow 12\right\} \] 0.027404 is 27404 microseconds to parse the text, do the calculation and format and present the results on the CRT tube.
