Sharon is drawing up a plan for building a reduced Eiffel Tower on her backyard patio. She has room to make a base of 5 feet. Her work is shown below. France: height = 1,050 feet; base = 328 feet. 1. Proportion: StartFraction 1050 over 328 EndFraction = StartFraction 5 over x EndFraction. 2. Cross Products: 1050 (x) = 328 (5). 3. Simplify: 1050 x = 1640. 4. Divide: x almost-equals 1. 5619. The reduced tower height is about 1. 6 feet. What was Sharon’s error in finding the missing height measurement for her reduced tower? Her proportion does not have corresponding parts in the same position. For cross products, she needed to multiply 1050(328) and 5(x). She needed to divide both sides by 1640, instead of 1050. She needed to round down to 1. 5 feet.
