a photo 5 inches wide and 7 inches long is enlarged. The sides of the new photo are in proportion to the original. The new photo is 14 inches wide. how do i find the length

• math -

us proportions, then cross multiply:

5/7 = 14/x

5*x = 7*14

5x = 98

5x/5 = 98/5

x = 19.6 inches in length

• math -

This is a good problem for a proportion. Let x equal the new length.

5/14 = 7/x

Cross multiply:

5x = 98
x = 19.6

7.6x-3.5x= -123

• math -

7.6x-3.5x= -123
