Hadrosaurs, a family of duck-billed, plant-eating dinosaurs, were large creatures with thick, strong tails. It has recently been determined that hadrosaurs probably originated in North America.
Scientists in Alaska recently found a hadrosaur footprint like the one at right that measured inches across. It is believed that the footprint was created by a young dinosaur that was approximately feet long. Adult hadrosaurs have been known to be feet long. How wide would you expect a footprint of an adult hadrosaur to be? Show your reasoning.
