Re: Understanding Ratio to Scale ?Hi SuperLynx; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20090701 05:29:57

Re: Understanding Ratio to Scale ?
I need to divide 7/27 then apply that to 24 ? I'm not following #18 20130414 17:46:07
Re: Understanding Ratio to Scale ?When you are converting a ratio by scaling it up or down you have to multiply or divide the components by the same number. Last edited by SteveB (20130414 17:51:41) #19 20130414 18:10:07
Re: Understanding Ratio to Scale ?hi SuperLynx So that would make the multipler: Let's check it works: Now use the same multiplier to get the other two values in the ratio. That's the problem. A similar problem arises if you try to use 24 and 9 to get a multiplier. Are you sure that the original problem is typed correctly?

Re: Understanding Ratio to Scale ?
I have to always divide the smallest number of a larger ratio into the bigger number ? If so I'm always going to get a decimal. #21 20130415 03:18:12
Re: Understanding Ratio to Scale ?
Firstly it does not really matter if you get a decimal and second you do not necessarily have to be concerned about whether the #22 20130420 15:41:30
Re: Understanding Ratio to Scale ?
Whoa, I feel like your shooting my head. Can you break it down with my original book example, I may get the math more easier ? Last edited by SuperLynx (20130420 15:41:54) #23 20131113 13:55:39
Re: Understanding Ratio to Scale ?I need to reopen this subject as I feel Ill understand better.
