**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, November 3, 2010 at 2:49pmOne way to solve this problem is with proportions.

1.5/1 = 18/x

Cross multiply:

1.5x = 18

x = 18/1.5

x = 12 feet

Try the second dimension. I'll be glad to check your answer.

**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, November 3, 2010 at 3:15pmYour number is correct, but the unit is wrong. Your question asks what are the dimensions of her room.

I told you one of the dimensions is 12**feet**. I don't think the other dimension is 16**inches**.

**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, November 3, 2010 at 3:19pmYour welcome.

I hope you realize that the room measures 12 feet by 16 feet.
