1a. Suppose a model is created to have a scale ratio of 1in: 110ft. How tall will the model be to the tip?
1b. There are 102 floors in the building beneath the observation deck. A model is created with a scale of 1in: 60 feet. Assuming each of the floors are the same height, how tall is each floor of the building in the scale model?
1c. A model is created that is 6 inches tall. What is the scale that was used to create the model?
a. The ratio is 1 in to 110 ft. To find how many inches the model will have we'll do: 1454/110 = 13.22... View the full answer
