A photo that is 8 in. wide and 12 in. long is enlarged to a poster. If the width is enlarged to 24 in., what is the length of the poster?
24 x 4 = 48/12 = 4
right....???? 
No. That answer doesn't make any sense. The length must be a lot longer than 12 in.

12 x 8 = 96/24 = 4
right...? 
or...
12 x 24 = 288/8 = 36 
Which is the only answer that makes sense?

the second one

Of course.

Clyde makes a copy of an 8 in. x 10 in. photo, reducing it to 3/4 of its size. What are the dimensions of the new photo?
Ok... I REALLY don't get this question..
Please help... 
3/4 * 8 = 24/4 = 6
3/4 * 10 = ? 
7 1/2?

why can you just multiply 3/4 and 10 to get the answer?
why 3/4 * 8 = 24/4 = 6...?? 
Because you've reduced the size to 3/4 of its original size.

oh ok
