§ 13.1

  • 1. Find the geometric mean between:

    • 2 and 3

    • 4 and 9

    • 7 and 14

    • 15 and 60

The geometric mean of a and b is √ab

√6

√36 = 6

  • 2. Complete each statement:

    • If 4x = 7y, then x/y = ______ and y/4 = ______ .

    • If 12m = 21, then 4m = ______ and m/7 = ______ .

    • If 6x = 5  9, then x/5 = ______ and x/9 = ______ .

    • If 15x/28y = 5a/4b, then bx = ______ and x/a = ______

a. Given 4x = 7y. Divide both sides by 4y; x/y = 7/4

Divide both sides by 28; x/7 = y/4

b. Given 12m = 21. Divide both sides by 3; 4m = 7;

Divide both sides by 84; 4/7 = 4

  • c. Given 6x = 5  9. Divide both sides by 30; x/5 = 9/6 = 3/2;

    • Divide both sides by 54; x/9 = 45/54 = 5/6.

  • d. Given 15x/28y = 5a/4b. Multiple both sides by 28by/15;

  • yielding bx = 7ay/3;

    • Multiply both sides by 28y/15a; x/a = 7y/3b

    • 3. Complete each statement:

      • If 5/12 = 15/36, then (5 + 12)/12 = (15 + ?)/36 .

      • If 7/9 = 28/36, then 7/2 = 28/(36 - ?) .

      • If a/b = 6/5, then (a + b)/b = ______ and (a – b)/b = ______ .

      • If (a + c)/c = 11/7, then a/c = ______ and c/a = ______ .

    a. If 5/12 = 15/36, then (5 + 12)/12 = (15 + 36)/36

    • If 7/9 = 28/36, then 7/2 = 28/(36 - 28) .

    • c. If a/b = 6/5, then (a + b)/b = 11/5 and (a – b)/b = 1/5 .

    • d. If (a + c)/c = 11/7, then a/c = 4/7 and c/a = 7/4 .
