6 meters is the same as 6,000 millimeters

You'd multiply 1 mm by 6,000 to get 6 meters

Similarly, multiply 12 mm by 6,000

to get the length of the parking lot 12 mm * 6,000 = 72,000 mm

then, convert mm to meters: 72,000 mm * 1/1,000 meter/mm = 72 meters

To solve this problem, do this...

If 1:6, 12:x?

12/1 = 12.

12*6 = 72

**The answer is 72 meters.**
