The ratio of the width to the length on a Canadian flag is 1:2.
a) The flag on the cover of an atlas is 12 cm wide, what is it's length?
The length of the flag on the cover of the atlas would be 24 cm long because on the real Canadian flag the width is half of the length so the same would occur here and 12 is half of 24 and 12 is the width and 24 is the length.
b)A large flag outside a Calgary school is 3 meters in length, what is its width?
The width of the flag would be 1.5 meters because again the width is half the length and the length is 3 meters and half of 3 is 1.5 meters wide.
