Nicole is running for school president. Her best friend designed her campaign poster, which measured 3 feet by 2 feet. Nicole liked the poster so much, she reproduced the artwork on rectangular buttons that measured 2 inches by 1 1/3inches. What is the scale factor (as a fraction)?

    You didn't need to correct yourself then. That's what the original passage said. Now how many times can you fit 2 inches into an entire foot?

    Yes. And it's three feet in the original model right? What's 6 times 3?

    Yeah. 3 by 2. And if the miniature replica of the model is 2 by 1 1/3. And you can fit 2 inches in a foot 6 times. How many times would it by if you fit 2 inches into 3 feet?

    More 1/18 since the replica is an 18th the size of the original model.
