Sarah is making a scale drawing of a painting that is 48 in. wide by 120 in tall. her paper is 12 in. wide and 24 in. tall. She decides to use the scale 1 in. = 4in. is this a reasonable scale?

    No.

    With that scale she'd need 30-inch-long paper.

    What would we do without Ms. Sue??

    The scale is 1 in= 4 in.
    1:4= .25 or 25%

    So 12/48= .25 or 25%
    24/120= .2 or 20%
    The ratio does not match the height ratio.
