You purchased a scale model of the Statue of Liberty. The scale is 1:456. The model is 8 inches high and has a surface area of 0.052 ft^2.
a. What is the height of the Statue of Liberty?
b. What is the surface area of the Statue of Liberty?
Thanks for helping!
a. 456/1 = x/8
b. 456/1 = x/.052
Solve for x.
