How high would a 44,700-ft mountain be in the model?

1 is to 100 000   as   'x' is to 44 700

 

1/100 000  =  x / 44700

 

44 700 / 100 000 = x   ft       Then convert your answer to inches by multiplying by  12 in/ft       

 

     WHERE is this mountain????  cheeky

Maybe on Mars.  There are some pretty high ones there.
