How can you decide whether a photo or drawing can be enlarged or reduced to fit a space without distorting the shape?

• math -

make sure the ratio of the dimensions stays the same. say if you had a 3 x 4 picture you could change the dimensions to 6 x 8 and because they are the same ratio the image should not be distorted.

• math -

You can make sure that the ratios of the corresponding side lengths stay the same. For example the dimensions are 2 and 4. You can then make apicture that is doubled 4 and 8. If you make this for example a square this will fitin the larger one 4 times without distorting it (distorting means twisting or rotating)
