    1feet = 12inches 6feet=12*6=72inches 6feet 8inches=72+8=80inches now for the ordinate, 12feet=12*12=144inches now to check if 5in*9in is in proportion with 80in*144in 80/5 should be equal to 144/9 which is not the case so they are not in proporition anf this her sketch is not similar to her actual room

    80-5=75 and 144-9=135 75 is divisible by 5 and 135 is divisible by 9..so the ans is yes

    Following from deeprony7: 80/5 = 16 144/9=16 hence 80/5=144/9 yes it's proportional which means it is similar =D
