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?

    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

    @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??

    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 :)

    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|
