5 answers

  1. (9/60) x 35 = ___

  2. I am sorry to ask this question, but should the ft not have been converted to inches first?
    The way I see it, the model is 1/80 of the original.
    60' = 720"
    720" divided by 9" = 80"
    35' = 420"
    420 divided by 80 = 5.25
    Am I correct in my reasoning?

  3. Because a proportion is used, converting the units is not actually necessary in this case. Your reasoning is correct, but so is drwls's.

  4. Thank you so much for that explanation.
    Have a great day!
