Sum

A photographer uses a computer program to enlarge a photograph. What is the scale according to which the width has enlarged?

#### Solution

By the given graph, we have width before editing = 2 units

Width after editing = 4 units

We know that, Scale = "Size before editing"/"Size after editing"

∴ Scale = 2/4 = 1/2 = 1:2

Hence, scale used to enlarge the photograph is 1:2
