# A technical drawing shows the 3 1 2 ft lengths of the legs of a baby’s swing by line segments 3 in. long. If the diagram should indicate the legs are 2 1 2 ft apart at the base, what length represents this distance on the diagram?

To determine

To calculate:

The length that represents the distance on the diagram.

Explanation

Given:

A technical drawing shows the 312ft lengths of the legs of a baby’s swing by the line segments 3in long. If the diagram should indicate the legs are 212ft apart at the base.

Definition Used:

Similarity between Two polygons:

Two polygons are similar if and only if when all pairs of corresponding angles are congruent and all pairs of corresponding sides are proportional.

Calculation:

Let us assume that p be length that represents the distance on the diagram.

According to the definition of similar polygon, p212=3312.
