A scale model of a house is 1 foot long. The actual house is 50 feet long. In the model, the window is 1 1/5 inches high. How many feet high is the actual window?

scale = 1 / 50
1 1 / 5 = 1.2
1.2 / ( 1 / 50 ) = 50 * 1.2 = 60 in
1 ft = 12 in
60 in = 5 ft 
w/1.2 = 50/1
w = 50(1.2) = 60 inches or 5 ft 
5ft
