Assignment: Area of a Scaled Figure Investigation

Khianna is trying to help her neighbor Mrs. Johnson design and estimate the cost of a new

square patio to be made from 16 inch square pavers. The pavers are sold in boxes of 12 and cost

AV011413 Part II: Bigger Design

There is a saying that bigger is better, so why not double the dimensions of Mrs. Johnson?s patio

to make the side measurement twice as big? Mrs. Johnson and I think that it would better meet

her needs. After seeing the original estimation, she thinks that she could afford to double the

size. I explained that making the patio twice as big would mean twice the cost. Mrs. Johnson

says, ?Let?s do it!?

a. What would be the new dimensions of Mrs. Johnson?s patio? b. Calculate the new area of Mrs. Johnson?s patio. Show all work. c. How many pavers will be needed for the new design? Show all work. d.
