The blueprints for a new house or scaled so that 1/4 inch equals 1 foot. the blueprint is the preimage and the house is the dialated image. The blueprints are plotted on a coordinate plane.
A. What is the scale factor in terms of inches to inches?
there are 12 inches in a foot
1/4 in to 12 in ... 1 inch to 48 inches
They got 48 because 12 divided by 1/4 is 48
i just want to know how did you reach to 48? im so confuseddd
To find the scale factor in terms of inches to inches, we need to consider the relationship between the length in the blueprint and the corresponding length in the actual house.
In this case, we know that 1/4 inch on the blueprint represents 1 foot in the actual house. Since 1 foot is equal to 12 inches, we can say that 1/4 inch on the blueprint represents 12 inches in the actual house.
Thus, the scale factor in terms of inches to inches is 1/4 inch to 12 inches.
