The length of each piece in a model train railroad built on the HO scale is 1/87 of the actual length. Another popular model is the N scale, for which the scale is 1/160.
Each car on a fullsize passenger train is 80ft long. What is the length in inches of a model passenger car in the HI scale? In the N scale?

HO gauge:
1/87 = x/80
Cross multiply and solve for x.
