So I have to draw two rectangles on graph paper that each have to fit in a 15 by 20 block. The first rectangle can be what ever size you want but the second one needs be similar with a 3/5 ratio of the first. I can't figure out what their sizes should be.
1. Choose Length and Width of the larger rectangle that are divisible by 5.
2. The corresponding sides of the smaller rectangle should be 3/5 of the larger.
L1 = 10
W1 = 5
L2 = (3/5) * 10 = 6.
W2 = (3/5) * 5 = 3.
