# A model is made of a car. The car is 9 feet long and the model is 6 inches long. What is the ratio of the length of the car to the length of the model?

**Solution:**

We know that

1 feet = 12 inches

Given that length of the car is 9ft and the length of the model car is 6 inches.

To find the ratio we need to change both the dimensions into the same units.

Hence,

converting ft into inches:

So if the car is 9 feet = 12 × 9 = 108 inches

The ratio of the length of the car to the length of the model can be written as:

108/6 = 18/1

Therefore, the ratio is 18: 1 or 18.

**Summary:**

A model is made of a car. The car is 9 feet long and the model is 6 inches long. The ratio of the length of the car to the length of the model is 18: 1 or 18.
