I have read and read this promble and I just am not understanding it, could some one please help. I have been out of school for a long time.
The length of the Statue of Liberty's index finger is 8 feet while the height to the top of the head is about 111 feet. Suppose your measurements are proportionaly the same as this statue and your height is 5 feet.
a. Use the information to find the proposed length of your index finger. Give an exact measurement and then a decimal rounded to the nearest hundredth.
b. Measure your index finger and write it as a decimal in feet round to the nearest hundredth. How close is the length of your index finger to a. Explain.
