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 the largest possible map that can fit on the page?

24 > 8 which is 3 big to 1 small
36 > 10 which is 3.6 big to 1 small
so to keep the proportions we must reduce dimensions by 3.6/1
8*3.6 = 28.8
10*3.6 = 36
