A picture that measures 10 cm long is reduced on a copy machine to 4 cm long. If the width of the original picture is 6 cm, what is the width

of the reduced picture? Set up a proportion to solve this problem?

of the reduced picture? Set up a proportion to solve this problem?

2.4 cm

Step-by-step explanation:10/4 = 6/x

x = width of reduced picture

24 = 10x (cross multiplication)

24/10 = x

2.4 = x

The width of the reduced picture is 2.4 cm.
