A model length of 12 cm. represents an actual length of 102 feet. What is the scale model?

    You have to convert feet to centimeters here.

    change 102 feet to inches by multiplying by 12.

    Then convert inches to centimeters.

    1 inch = about 2.5 cm, so divide the
    inches by 2.5 to get centimeters.

    Then take a ratio with the 12 cm. I think the scale is 40:1.
