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, Monday, April 16, 2012 at 5:58pm
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  Ms. Sue, Monday, April 16, 2012 at 6:02pm
Use this proportion:
1/25 = 3/x

No.
Cross multiply and solve for x.
