## meggy 2 years ago PLEASE HELP!!April built a model of the F-16 Fighting Falcon that is proportional to the actual F-16 Fighting Falcon. The actual F-16 has a length of 14.8 meters and a wingspan that measures 9.8 meters. Her model has a length of 0.5 meter. What is the approximate measure of the wingspan on April's model?

1. deerhunter24

.04

2. meggy

3. pratu043

10. deerhunter24

yeh one sec let me go back to it

11. meggy

ok thankss

12. deerhunter24

take 14.8 and divide it by .5 then take that answer and times it by 9.8 and you should get the correct answer i believe

13. Aperogalics

@meggy r u there??????????? did u get it or need explanation???????

14. meggy

let me try what hunter said real fast

15. Aperogalics

ok when u r over then mention me so that i can help u??????

16. meggy

ookk well hunter nice try but it waqsnt the correct answer so @Aperogalics :)))wanna give it a shot

17. deerhunter24

sorry i tried thought it would get you the correct answer sorry

18. meggy

ohh its ok :) no problem.

19. Aperogalics

@meggy a model is a copy of that but dimensions are in small ratio like map in map it looks like exact actual but dimensions are made small note that ratio of dimensions of actual to model is same in any direction so length and bredth ratio must be the same so can u evaluate the length ratio??

20. meggy

how do i do that?

21. Aperogalics

what is the length of actual size plain????????

22. Aperogalics

sry plane :D

23. meggy

9.8 meters? :O

24. meggy

or 14.8 idk ):

25. Aperogalics

actual F-16 has a length of 14.8 meters got it??????

26. meggy

ook so the length = 14.8

27. Aperogalics

ya and it's model has length????????

28. meggy

.5 meters

29. Aperogalics

yup:) so ratio is l1/l2=?????????

30. meggy

.916? how did you get 11/12 im confused

31. Aperogalics

Don't get confused i m just talking about ratios which must be equal it will be clear wait not 11/12 sry i mean L1/L2=14.8/0.5=29.6 :)

32. meggy

ook :)

33. Aperogalics

now their wings must also satisfy this relation:) can you evaluate

34. meggy

whats that mean?

35. Aperogalics

simply the ratio must be same every where so wings also has to follow this so actual F-16 has a wingspan that measures 9.8 meters so its model has to have such value that its ratio must be 29.6 so let it be x |dw:1354630266397:dw|

36. Aperogalics

@meggy got it???????:)

37. meggy
