Help With Measurements?

Postby DaHeckIzDat » March 31st, 2018, 8:21 pm

Hey guys, I suck at math, so could somebody maybe help me out with this? It may... or may not... relate to one of my books.

So, a regular boxcar on a train is usually 50 ft long, 10 feet tall, and ten feet wide. If the car was 100 miles long, and I wanted to keep it proportionally similar to the real thing, what would the rest of the measurements be?

10 is 1/5 of 50. So if it's 100 miles long, it's 20 miles tall and wide.
