Tim wants to model a doll house from a real house that measures 60 feet in length by 28 feet in width. He decides to use a scale in which ¼ inch equals 1 foot. Based on this scale,
What will be the length of the longer side of Tim's model? inches
What will be the length of the shorter side of Tim's model? inches

One way to work this problem:
Change the feet to inches and solve the proportion for x.
720/x = 12/0.25
12x = 180
x = 15 inches
Figure the length of short side the same way.
