Quinn used a scale drawing to build a soccer field near his school. Initially, he wanted the field to be 28 yards long and 17.5 yards wide. He decided to change the length of the field to 36 yards. If the width is to be changed by the same scale factor, what is the new width of the field? Express your answer to the nearest tenth.

  • math -

    17.5/28 = x/36

    Solve for x.

  • math -

    Cross multiply and solve for w

    28/17.5 = 36/w

    28w = 630

    w = 22.5 yards
