Q:
# The ratio of the length to the width of a map is 8 to 5. The map is exactly 32 inches in length. What is the width of the map? A. 13 inches B. 20 inches C. 24 inches D. 32 inches

Accepted Solution

A:

Ratio of length to width of a map = 8:5

Length of the map = 32 inches

Let the width of the map = x inches

So,

Length : Width = 8 : 5

32 : x= 8: 5

x = 5/8 * 32

x = 20 inches

So, the width of the map is 20 inches

Length of the map = 32 inches

Let the width of the map = x inches

So,

Length : Width = 8 : 5

32 : x= 8: 5

x = 5/8 * 32

x = 20 inches

So, the width of the map is 20 inches
