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 
Ms. Sue,
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. 
math 
Taylor,
is it 0.12 can u help me

math 
Ms. Sue,
Use this proportion:
1/25 = 3/x 
math 
Taylor,
so its 0.12 right can you u just go thorough it with steps

math 
Taylor,

Ms. Sue,
No.
Cross multiply and solve for x.
