b = length of the base of the photograph h = length of the height of the photograph be = length of the base of the enlarged photograph he = length of the height of the enlarged photograph Note that all quantities are measured in inches b/h is proportional to be/he because the ratio of the corresponding measures remains the same that is the ratio b/h is the same as be/he. Since the quantities are proportional it means I can figure out the value of “he” by plugging it into a proportion. The height of the enlarged photo with a 15in base is 11.25in. I determined the height of the box by setting up the proportion ______=______. To solve for he in the proportion I multiplied b times be and divided by h. This method worked because the value of each ratio in the proportion is equal.
