6-51.

Draw a rectangle with a width of $8$ units and a length of $6$ units.

1. What is the enlargement ratio if you enlarge the figure to have a width of $16$ units and a length of $12$ units?

• $8(?) = 16$
$6(?) = 12$

1. If you wanted to reduce therectangle by a ratio of $\frac { 1 } { 4 }$, what would the dimensions of the new rectangle be?

• What is one fourth of $8$? What is one fourth of $6$?

The rectangle would be $2$ units by $1\frac{1}{2}$ units.
