PostSubject: Scaling (A Math Conundrum)   Wed Mar 06, 2013 7:21 pm

Quite confused. So, I'm in seventh grade, in advanced math. I have quite a lot of struggles with it, but by the time I have the opportunity to ask my teacher for help, I don't need it anymore. I don't ask my parents for help because 1) my dad is terrible at math and 2) my mother remembers almost nothing.

My particular struggle currently is Scaling. You know how on a map it says 1 inch= 30 miles, etc. etc.? Well, seems easy enough. I have finally clung to the basics of it (though I am hanging for dear life), but one thing perplexes me. Ratio of Areas.

For those of you who have no idea what that means, you'll be no help because I don't know what it really means either. Okay, I have a basic idea but I'm still confused on how to get it. I understand you use the scale factor to determine the length, width, height, base, etc. etc. However, after you find the area of the whatever with the numbers you just found with the scale factor, what's next? I thought I paid attention in class, but apparently I must've zoned out. I was just wondering how the heck you do this?

I'm also confused about a million other things in this subject, but this is my main concern. Thanks for reading.

If you can't have Scott McCall, why bother?

I think that I'm doing the same thing too and I understand it pretty well. What exactly do you need help with?

Oh, you mean like 1 inch equals ten miles on a map? We are here to help, dear. *said the freshman advanced geometry child*
