  1. Describe how each of the following multipliers would change the dimensions of a photograph. For example, a multiplier of 15-2 would significantly enlarge the dimensions. Homework Help ✎

If the fraction is less than one, does it make sense that the photograph would become smaller?
If the fraction is much less than one, the photograph will be significantly reduced.
If it is just a little less than one, it will only be reduced a small amount.
The opposite is true, if the fraction is greater than one, then the photograph will be enlarged.

Knowing the information above, can you now describe how the dimensions would change?

Is the multiplier smaller than one?

Is the multiplier smaller than one?

Is the multiplier equal to one?
