## Kaslee90 3 years ago An architect is designing a building that is 200 feet long and 140 feet wide. She builds a model so that the similarity ratio of the model to the building is 1:500. What is the length of the model in inches?

1. ChmE

First convert the dimensions to inches first. What do you get?

2. robinfr93

hey ChmE can you help me with a question of my own??

3. ChmE

Now you know from the problem that for every inch on the model it equals 500 inches in real life. So you can take the real life dimensions and divide by 500 to get the model's dimensions

Do I put it into a fraction form?

5. ChmE

sure, post it in the open questions and I'll help @robinfr93

6. ChmE

8. Kaslee90

The choices I have to chose from for the answer are A) 4.6 B) 3.3 C) 3.6 D)4.8

9. Kaslee90

I tried putting it into fraction form and I got 2.5 for the answer
