b) The model is made out of a stack of plywood sheets. Each sheet is 0.6 inch thick. How many sheets

of plywood tall is the model?

A) **125 meters : 1 foot**

The scale is the real skyscraper’s height to the model’s.

525 meters / 4.2 ft

125 meters to 1 ft

125:1

b) **84 pieces**

The model is 4.2 feet or (4.2 x 12) 50.4 inches tall.

Each sheet is. 6 thick

To find how many sheets are used, divide the model’s height in inches by the individual thickness of each sheet

50.4/.6

84 pieces

Model is

4.2 feet=525 meters

scale is normally

1 unit of smalller=x units of bigger

4.2feet=525meters

divie both sidesby 4.24

1ft=125m

scal is 1ft:125m

model=4.2 feet tall

sheet=0.6 in

convert 4.2 ft ot inches

1 foot=12 inches

4.2 foot=4.2 times 12 inches=50.4

so we have

height=50.4 inches

how many 0.6 inches fit aka

0.6 times what=50.4

divide both sides by 0.6

what=84

84 sheets

A. 1ft:125m

B. 84 sheets
