# The scale of the graph shown in Figure 11.4.1 is one-fourth inch to each unit. If the point ( 2 , 2 64 ) is plotted on the graph of y = 2 x , how many miles will it lie above the horizontal axis? What is the ratio of the height of the point to the distance of the earth from the sun? (There are 12 inches per foot and 5,280 feet per mile. The earth is approximately 93,000,000 miles from the sun on average.) ( 1 4 inch ≅ 0.635 cm , 1 mile ≅ 0.62 km )
