A building blueprint has a scale of 2 inches equal to 25 feet. On the blueprint, the 10-story building has a height of 12 inches. What is the actual height of 1 story?

The height of 1 story on the blueprint is 12/10 = 1.2 in

From the proportion 2 in / 25 ft = 1.2 in / x ft, where x is the actual height of 1 story, we get

x = 25*1.2/2 = 15 ft.

Answer: 15 ft.
