Q:
# Christopher made a scaled copy of the following trapezoid. He used a scale factor greater than 1. What could be the length of the side that corresponds with BCa.) 1/5 unitsb.) 4 unitsc.)15.5 unitsd.)24 unitse.)18 units

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The correct options are c, d and e.Step-by-step explanation:From the given graph it is clear that the length of BC is 5 units.Christopher made a scaled copy of the following trapezoid.1. If a the scale factor is less than 1 then the image is smaller than its original figure.2. If a the scale factor is greater than 1 then the image is larger than its original figure.It is given that he used a scale factor greater than 1. So, the scaled copy of the following trapezoid is larger than the given trapezoid.The length of corresponds with BC is greater than 5.[tex]\frac{1}{5}<5[/tex][tex]4<5[/tex][tex]15.5>5[/tex][tex]24>5[/tex][tex]18>5[/tex]Therefore, the correct options are c, d and e.
