When you sketch a figure of an adult male, it is recommended that the head be 1/8 of the total height. If the full drawn height of a 6-foot man is 10 inches, how many inches should the drawing of his head be from top to bottom? Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest hundredth.

I think I recall that the height of the head is 1/6 of the total.....(it isn't in your Q)

 

1/6  *   6' 10"  =

1/6   * 82" =  14"   head height

I edited my question, it's not 1/6 it is 1/8... I'm so sorry I don't know why it didn't show it, you don't have to solve it again though, I think I understood how I was supposed to do it. Thank you!
