    Another Word Problem Check

    I think I got this one:

    The negative for an image is 3.6 cm wide x 2.4 cm high. If a print with a width of 13.68 cm is produced from a negative, what will the size of the print be written as width x height? Solve using a proportion. Round the answer to the nearest hundredth.

    My proportion:
    3.6cm 13.68cm
    ------- = ----------
    2.4cm X

    3.6cm * X 13.68cm * 2.4cm
    ----------- = --------------------
    3.6cm 3.6cm

    X = 9.12cm

    My answer - 13.68 cm x 9.12 cm

    Thanks in advance.
