You are reducing a map of dimensions 2 ft by 3 ft to fit to a piece of paper 8 in by 10 in. What are the dimensions of largest possible map that can fit on the page?

I really don't know how to do this but so far I tried to make 2 proportions by changing feet to inches. This is the proprtion:

8/10=24/x and 8/10=120/x. Can you help me?
