## Basic College Mathematics (10th Edition)

Comparing both values $2 \frac{7}{12}$ to $2 \frac{7}{12}$ we easily see that the length of the longest and shortest side is the same, which is an one-to-one ratio 1:1. The painting can have any other measurement of length and maintain the same ratio. As example: 1 feet = 12 inches. We compute with the converter by multiplying $2 \frac{7}{12} \cdot 12 = 30.96$inches. As example: 1 feet = 0.3 meters We compute with the converter by multiplying $2 \frac{7}{12} \cdot 0.3 = 0.775$meters.
