A blueprint represents the 72 -ft length of a building by a line segment of length 6 in. What length on the blueprint would be used to represent the height of this 30 -ft-tall building?

To determine

To calculate:

The length on the blueprint that represents the heights of this 30ft tall building.

Explanation

Given:

A blueprint represents the 72ft length of a building by a line segment of length 6in.

Approved:

Similarity between Two polygons:

Two polygons are similar if and only if when all pairs of corresponding angles are congruent and all pairs of corresponding sides are proportional.

Calculation:

Let us assume that p be the length on the blueprint that represents the heights of this 30ft tall building.

According to the definition of similar polygon, p30=672.
