a soccer field is 130 yds long, and a football field is 120 yds long. how many times the area of the smaller field is the area of the larger field.
Do you know how wide these fields are?
In order to calculate the area we need the length times the width, or we at least need to know they are the same width!
the field are soccer: 100 yd football 53 1/3 yd
Okay, great! Do you know how to calculate the area? hint: length x width
ill be right back
i multiplied already what next
Okay what are the two areas!?
We need to take the ratio of the two areas, for example if one field was 8 sqft and the other was 4 sqft, the ratio is 8/4, or 2:1 where we would say the filed was 2x the other field.
6360 and 13000
You may want to check the math, I think it's closer to 6400 for the football field! But anyways we would say 13000/6400 = x Then the soccer field's area is x times as large as the football field.
thanks so it would be 2 times bigger
Roughly yes. I'm not sure how accurate you need to be, but yes it is \[\approx\] 2.03
