I can't just give you the answer. That would be contrary to the OpenStudy Code of Conduct. You have all the information you need. Is the model larger or smaller than the actual?

Answer the question. Is the model larger or smaller than the actual?

Do better than that. "The scale model is enlarged by a scale factor of 3" The model is larger or smaller than the actual?
dakid88
  • dakid88
smaller
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
Try again. "The scale model is enlarged"
dakid88
  • dakid88
so it is larger
tkhunny

That's the spirit. So the actual garden is rather small, it would seem - although this is odd. Which of the answers produces a result that is less than 15? A.15/3^2 B.15/3 C.15×3 D.15×3^2

  • dakid88
i will say B.

A and B produce results less than 15. Which is correct?
dakid88
  • dakid88
A.

Why?

Note: I'm worried about this problem. It is VERY unusual for a scale model of something like a garden to be larger than the garden. We MAY be going the wrong direction. If this one comes back marked incorrect, then it is a very poorly worded question. Definitely 15/9 - AS STATED..

My point is this. If it were a scale model of an atom, I would expect a model to be larger. A garden? Very odd. 15 sq ft isn't much. 1/9 of that? It's a bonsai garden, at best.
