28. Van Gogh’s painting Starry Night measures 92 cm long by 73 cm high. You buy a poster that shows an enlargement of the painting. The poster measures 120 cm long by 100 cm high. Is the poster an accurate representation of the painting? (Hint: Is the poster similar to the painting?) (2 points)

    Let's set up a proportion and see.

    92/120 = 73/100

    Cross multiply:

    9200 = 8760

    The poster is not an accurate representation.

    Here's another way of solving this problem.
