The image shows German Flag.

Flag of Germany showing its length and width

Flag of Germany Showing Its Length and Width

(a) As we know length of German Flag is 1.67 times more than that of width, if width of flag is 50 cm then find the length of given flag of Germany.

(b) If ratio of width and length of flag is 3: 5 then if length is 835 mm than find the width of the flag.

Explanation

Here,

(a) Length of German Flag is 1.67 times more than that of width, if width of flag is 50 cm.

So,

So, length will be 83.5 cm.

(b) Here, ratio of width and length of flag is 3: 5.

Length is 835 mm. Let’s take width = w.

So, ratio will be: .

Solve:

Co-ordinate plane with a line l

Co-Ordinate Plane with a Line L

(a) Mark the point with co-ordinates (3,2) and label it A.

(b) Find co-ordinates of the point B.

(c) Find the gradient of the line l.

Explanation

Here,

(a) Here, point is (x, y) = (3,2) which can place in diagram as below:

Co-ordinate plane showing a point

Co-Ordinate Plane Showing a Point

(b) Here, point B is in second quarter of coordinate plane which gives minus value of x and plus value of y means (-x, y).

  • So, point B (-x, y) = B (-2,1).

(c) Here, gradient of a line is also known as slope of the line.

  • For finding slop we need two point of line. So take O (0,0) and B (-2,1)
  • Now, formula for slope =
