last thing i promise ok the length of the wing of a model airplane is 3 in. if th escale of the model to the actual plane is 1in=25ft wha tis the length of the actual wing? is it 8.3 or 0.12

  • math - ,

    Neither of those.

    Think about it if the model wing is 3 inches long, the actual wing must be much longer than 25 feet.

    Try again.

    Use this proportion:

    1/25 = 3/x

    so its 0.12 right can you u just go thorough it with steps

  • math - ,

    No.

    Cross multiply and solve for x.
