The White House, built 1792, is the oldest federal building in Washington, D.C. The building has undergone extensive remodeling over the years. The main building is four stories high and is about 170 ft long by 85 ft wide. If a replica of the White House were made with a length of 4 ft, what would be the width of the replica?

My Answer - 85 x 4 = 340/170 = 2
