Which equation below represents the relationship between the actual height (a) ,in feet and the height of the model (m) , in inches?

 

\(a\;\; \alpha\;\; m\\ a\;\; =\;\;k * m\\ \text{When actual is 15 model is 7}\\ 15\;\; =\;\;k * 7\\ k=\frac{15}{7}\\ a\;\; =\;\;\frac{15}{7} * m\\ a\;\; =\;\;\frac{15m}{7} \\ \)
