scale factor helpFind the scale factor of each if the polygons are proportional One, who adopts patience, will never be deprived of success though it may take a long time to reach him. Imam ali (as)<3 #2 20121002 06:22:58
Re: scale factor helpHi;
You went backwards on that calculation with the calculator? 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. #3 20121002 06:27:22
Re: scale factor helpIt just depends on whether you do (A divided by B) or (B divided by A). You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #4 20121002 06:51:40
Re: scale factor helpA = 7, 7, 21, 23 B = 28.7, 28.7, 86.1, 94.3 One, who adopts patience, will never be deprived of success though it may take a long time to reach him. Imam ali (as)<3 #5 20121002 06:56:45

Re: scale factor helpI answered 5D 8D 9E 10B and they were all incorrect So I revised it and here is what I got wondering if it is correct One, who adopts patience, will never be deprived of success though it may take a long time to reach him. Imam ali (as)<3 #9 20121002 07:20:04
Re: scale factor help41.4 divided by 9 gives be 4.6 and when I check it it is correct why do they give us such weird decimal confusing numbers it confuses me and it gets annoying One, who adopts patience, will never be deprived of success though it may take a long time to reach him.

Re: scale factor helpWhat did they say the answer was? It really should be A. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: scale factor helphi zeef
Yes, you are right. If shape A is transformed into B using a scale factor the correct way to compute the sf is to calculate B/A. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #15 20121004 06:43:47
Re: scale factor helpKaboobly doo! Oh wait, I liked A too. Brilliant answer then. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
