Andrew is building a scale model of an elephant. He determines that a real elephant is 10 feet tall and 14 feet long. If Andrew wants his model to be 8 inches tall, how many inches long should his model be?

First, change the 10 feet and 14 feet into inches-10(12)=120 inches and 14(12)=168 inches, respectively.

Now, we know that 120/8=15, so we have 168/15=11.2 inches long.
