If a model boat has a ratio of 1:30 and the boat is 9 inches long, how do I figure out the actual length of the boat?

Hi,

Ratio of modal boat to actual length of boat is 1:30.

Modal boat is 9 inches, therefore, the actual length is

inches, equal to 270 inches, or 22 feet, 6 inches.It is no good to try to stop knowledge from going forward. Ignorance is never better than knowledge - Enrico Fermi.
