  3. 3. Module 1 Lesson 18.notebook 3 October 11, 2013 Example 1: Basketball at Recess? Vincent proposes an idea to the student government to install a basketball hoop along with a court marked with all the shooting lines and boundary lines at his school for students to use at recess. He presents a plan to install a half court design as shown below. After checking with school administration, he is told it will be approved if it will fit on the empty lot that measures 25 feet by 75 feet on the school property. Will the lot be big enough for the court he planned?
  4. 4. Module 1 Lesson 18.notebook 4 October 11, 2013 The constant of proportionality, k = the scale factor y = drawing length x = actual length In example 1: k = y =
  5. 5. Module 1 Lesson 18.notebook 5 October 11, 2013 Find the actual length: Find the actual width:
  6. 6. Module 1 Lesson 18.notebook 6 October 11, 2013 Example 2: The diagram shown represents a garden. The scale is 1 cm for every 20 meters of actual length. Find the actual length and width of the garden based upon the given drawing. Each square in the drawing measures 1 cm by 1 cm. What is the scale factor (the constant of proportionality)? Find actual length: Find the actual width: k =

She needs to englarge the picture given here so that 0.25 inches on the scale picture will correspond to 1 inch on the actual advertisement. What will be the length and width of the tablet on the advertisement? Find the scale factor: Find the actual length: Find the actual width:
  8. 8. Module 1 Lesson 18.notebook 8 October 11, 2013 Exercise: Students from the high school are going to perform one of the acts from their upcoming musical at the atrium in the mall. The students want to bring some of the set with them so that the audience can get a better feel of the whole production. The backdrop that they want to bring has panels that measure 10 feet by 10 feet. The students are not sure if they will be able to fit these panels through the entrance of the mall since the panels need to be transported flat (horizontal). They obtain a copy of the mall floor plan, show below, from the city planning office. Use this diagram to decide if the panels will fit through the entrance. Use a rule to measure. a. Find the actual distance of the mall entrance and determine whether the set panels will fit.
