# [Tex/LaTex] How to align two images side by side and to scale them automatically to use whole slide

beamerpositioningscaling

I have two images. How do I align them side by side and scale them so that both of them together occupy the whole horizontal space in a beamer presentation?

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Inconsistency}
\begin{itemize}
\item
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=0.3]{peer}
\includegraphics[scale=0.3]{peer-inconsistent}
\end{center}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}


\includegraphics[width=<X>\textwidth]{<first image>}%

Here <X> denotes a number in (0,1), while <1-X> denotes its complement in the interval (0,1). Note the % to remove any space between the images. For equally-sized images, <X>=<1-X>=.5. Using only width as the scaling dimension will scale the height proportionally, maintaining the aspect ratio.
If vertical size does matter, you can also specify the height.
