Mariela loves car races,so she buys a model of the winning car from a race she watched. On the box she sees that the length of yhe model is about 8.5 inches. She knows that the actual car is about 208 in. long and 72.5 in. wide. About how wide should the model be?

Length/Width = 208/72.5 = 8.5/x

Solve for x
