# In a model of a ship, the mast is 9 cm high, while the mast of the actual ship is 15 m high. If

the length of the ship is 35 metres, how long is the model ship?

Answer :

The length and the height of ship and model should be proportional.

Height of mast of actual ship = 15 m

Height of model ship = 9 m

Length of ship = 35 m

Length of model = x

So,

15/35 = 9/x

Cross multiplying, we get,

x = (9 × 35)/15

x = 21 m**Length of model of the ship is 21 m.**
