Word problem
A woodcarver wants to make a scale model of a chair. The height of the model will be 3 inches which is 0.08 times the height of the fl sized chair
What is the size if the full sized chair in inches??
I got : 5.4 inches. Is this right??

A full sized chair is less than the length of my hand? I don't think so!
0.08x = 3
x = 3/0.08
x = 37.5 inches
