# Height of the Miniature

The height of a miniature New York City building is $\frac{1}{20}$ 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 $\frac{1}{20}$ 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.
