A microscope shows you an image of an object that is 80 times the actual size. Therefore, the scale factor of the enlargement is 80. An insect has a body length of 7 millimeters. What is the body length of the insect under the microscope?
I know it's 560, but not sure if millimeters or centimeters. How do you know?
