Sarah is making a scale drawing of a painting that is 48 in. wide by 120 in tall. her paper is 12 in. wide and 24 in. tall. She decides to use the scale 1 in. = 4in. is this a reasonable scale?

No.

With that scale she'd need 30-inch-long paper.

The scale is 1 in= 4 in.

1:4= .25 or 25%

So 12/48= .25 or 25%

24/120= .2 or 20%

The ratio does not match the height ratio.
