# A picture measures 11 inches tall by 14 inches wide. Nathan wants to enlarge the picture to fit it in a frame that is 16 inches tall. What equation will he need to use to find out how wide the picture should be after it is enlarged?

$x$ = (16)(14)$\div$11
Using equivalent ratios 16$\div$11 = $x$$\div$14
Cross multiply and you get 11$x$ = (16)(14)
$x$ = 20.36 in (.36 repeating)
