A rectangular place mat and matching napkin are proportional. The dimensions of the place mat are 1.5 times as large as the napkin's dimensions.
If the perimeterof the place mat is 60 in., the perimeter of the napkin is what?
i think i have to divide 60 by 1.5, but i'm not sure baecause the question says the DIMENSIONS, which is comfusing me.
