### A family is looking at a scale model of the house they are buying The model measures 6 inches by 12 inches The actual house measures 30 feet by 60 feet What is the scale of the model house?

The scale of the house is the ratio of the model to the actual
house. This ratio will be the same for both directions, or else the
model would be useless. 6 inches is .5 feet, so the ratio is .5:30.
You always want to write ratios as 1:something, so we double both
side of the ratio and get 1:60. Likewise, 12 inches is one
foot, so the ratio is 1:60 for the other dimension as well, as it
should be.
