Math 6. Correct?
posted by moby on .
Amy is making scale drawings of different things in her neighborhood. One house she drew is 30 feet wide. Her scale drawing of the house is 5 inches wide. Which of the following uses the same scale Amy used to draw this house? Is this right my answer below?
29.5 foot wide play ground is represented by a 4.5 inch wide drawing.
30 feet = 360 inches
360/5 = 72 to 1
4.5 inches * 72 = 324 inches = 27 feet not 29.5
The choices are that one or
3 foot tall mail box is represented by an 18 inch tall drawing
or the 29.5 foot wide play ground answer
3/18 = 5/30
Thank you, thank you. I thought I was forgotten :(
You are welcome.
