I believe the answer is C, 12

Step-by-step explanation:

180 ÷ 30 = 6

6 x 2 = 12

every inche equals 15 feet from 30/2 then divide it by the total 180/15 which equals 12

12 inches

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the conversion factor;

2inches = 30feet

if the height of the building is 180feet, we are to find the height of the scale model in inches.

Let x = 180 feet.

Equating both;

2inches = 30feet

x inches = 180feet

Cross multiply;

30 * x = 2 * 180

30x = 360

x = 360/30

x = 12inches

Hence the height of the scale model in inches is 12inches

The height of the model in inches would be 6. if you multiply 30 until it reaches 180 you will have 6.

A. 12 in

We know that the sports stadium is 180 ft tall and that in the scale model there is 2 in for every 30 ft. If we divide 180 by 30 we get 6. There is 2 in for every 30 ft, so the answer would be 6 x 2 or 12 in.
