Height of the Miniature

The height of a miniature New York City building is 120 the height of the real building. This describes the relationship between the miniature, 1, to the real building, 20.

Let m be the height of the miniature building.

Let r be the height of the real building.

  • How would you write a formula using 120 as the constant of proportionality?

Hint:

After you write your formula, try substituting in some numbers for the variables to check that the formula makes sense.
