Slide #2

using the properties of proportions
Using the properties of proportions
  • In Lesson 8.1, you studied the reciprocal property and the cross product property. Two more properties of proportions, which are especially useful in geometry, are given on the next slides.
  • You can use the cross product property and the reciprocal property to help prove these properties.

Cross Product Property

Divide each side by 20.

So, the length of BD is 8.

Slide #9

geometric mean
Geometric Mean
  • The geometric mean of two positive numbers a and b is the positive number x such that

a

x

If you solve this proportion for x, you find that x = √a ∙ b which is a positive number.

=

x

b

Slide #10

geometric mean example
Geometric Mean Example
  • For example, the geometric mean of 8 and 18 is 12, because

8

12

=

12

18

and also because x = √8 ∙ 18 = x = √144 = 12

Slide #11

ex 3 using a geometric mean
PAPER SIZES. International standard paper sizes are commonly used all over the world. The various sizes all have the same width-to-length ratios. Two sizes of paper are shown, called A4 and A3. The distance labeled x is the geometric mean of 210 mm and 420 mm. Find the value of x.Ex. 3: Using a geometric mean

Slide #12

slide13
Solution:

The geometric mean of 210 and 420 is 210√2, or about 297mm.

210

420

X2 = 210 ∙ 420

X = √210 ∙ 420

X = √210 ∙ 210 ∙ 2

X = 210√2

Slide #13

using proportions in real life
Using proportions in real life
  • In general when solving word problems that involve proportions, there is more than one correct way to set up the proportion.

Slide #14

ex 4 solving a proportion
Ex. 4: Solving a proportion
  • MODEL BUILDING. A scale model of the Titanic is 107.5 inches long and 11.25 inches wide. The Titanic itself was 882.75 feet long. How wide was it?

Width of Titanic

Length of Titanic

=

Width of model

Length of model

LABELS:

Width of Titanic = x

Width of model ship = 11.25 in

Length of Titanic = 882.75 feet

Length of model ship = 107.5 in.

Slide #15

reasoning
Write the proportion.

Substitute.

Multiply each side by 11.25.

Use a calculator.

Reasoning:

Width of Titanic

Length of Titanic

=

Width of model

Length of model

x feet

882.75 feet

=

11.25 in.

107.5 in.

11.25(882.75)

x

=

107.5 in.

x ≈ 92.4 feet

So, the Titanic was about 92.4 feet wide.

Slide #16

slide17
Note:
  • Notice that the proportion in Example 4 contains measurements that are not in the same units. When writing a proportion in unlike units, the numerators should have the same units and the denominators should have the same units.
  • The inches (units) cross out when you cross multiply.
