Need to build miniature model of something. Original measurements: 20ft long, 15ft wide, 25ft tall. How do I make this 20 times smaller??
Multiply all dimensions by 1/20 (or divide by 20). Model will be 1 ft long, 1 1/4 ft tall, and 9 inches wide.
Oh okay thank you! :) I thought I might have to divide but I wasn't exactly sure. Numbers came out weird when I did it. Thanks!
Yes, you could also convert all to inches and divide by 20 the answer then would be (in inches)12 tall, 9 wide, and 15 tall
Oh okay, that makes sense :) Thanks!
I think you want to decrease the total size by 20? So you will have to factor all the dimensions by 1/(cube root of 20).
