Elias’s teacher has given him a rectangle that is 15 feet by 20 feet. She has asked him to create a new rectangle using a scale factor of 8/3. Elias says that will be a reduction because the scale factor is a fraction. Is he correct? Explain.
So do you know what a scale factor of 8/3 will do to the 15 by 20 rectangle?
yes hold on a sec
why did u close the post
ohh because i thought no one was looking at it and by the time i noticed you i already closed it
do u need help?
kinda of i got some of the problem
ok, so 8/3 is a fraction. But that doesn't mean anything. So it will increase the shape if the number if above 1. Since 8/3 > 1 it will NOT be a reduction
