  • Answer:

    [tex]18.0\ in[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In this problem

    we know that

    The scale is equal to [tex]\frac{64}{5}[/tex]

    The actual length of the truck is [tex]230\ in[/tex]

    so

    By proportion

    Find the length of the scale model of the truck

    Let

    x-------> the length of the scale model of the truck

    [tex]\frac{64}{5}=\frac{230}{x}\\ \\x=5*230/64\\ \\x=17.97\ in[/tex]

    Round to the nearest tenth of an inch

    [tex]17.97\ in=18.0\ in[/tex]
