A model is built having a scale of 1ft : 100,000ft. How high would a 44,700-ft mountain be in the model? Give your answer to the nearest tenth of an inch.
a. 5.4 in.
b. 2.682 in.
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????
Maybe on Mars. There are some pretty high ones there.
