It says the image of the button is 5 times larger than the actual size. So let the diameter of the button be D obviously the diameter of the button in image is 5 times the actual diameter D. do you follow this?

So it's pretty easy, the diameter of the button in image 6 cm Relating it to actual size D \[6= 5\times D\] Can you find D from this?

6 = 30, what does this have to do with the actual dimension? Math is not my fortay, obviously.

Nope, the button's diameter in the image is 5 times the actual, not the other way around, so actual size should be small than 6 \[6=5\times D\] or\[5\times D=6\] use this to find D

Can you try?

6/5 = 1.2? so the actual size is 1.2, right?
