a building is 219 feet tall. for a class project, jim is to make a scale model of the building to place in the front hall display case. the display case is 28 inches tall. which scale will allow him to make the tallest model that will fit in the display case?

• math -

28in:219ft = 28in:2628in

a scale of 1:90 will need 29.2 in
a scale of 1:100 will need 26.28 in
a scale of 93.85 will be more exact, but I'd go with the 1:100 scale
