Tim wants to model a doll house from a real house that measures 60 feet in length by 28 feet in width. He decides to use a scale in which ΒΌ inch equals 1 foot. Based on this scale,

What will be the length of the longer side of Tim's model? inches

What will be the length of the shorter side of Tim's model? inches

  • Math - ,

    One way to work this problem:
    Change the feet to inches and solve the proportion for x.

    720/x = 12/0.25
    12x = 180
    x = 15 inches

    Figure the length of short side the same way.
