  1. 100 feet = 1200 inches

    scale = 10 inches : 1200 inches

    1 inch : 120 inches

  2. Set up a ratio.

    10 : 100 = 10/100 = 1/10

    The model is 1/10 the size of the Endeavour.

  3. Ignore my answer.

    I did not notice that one measurement is in feet.

    I compared inches to feet, which you cannot do.
