The airplane is 48 feet long in real dimensions.To find out how long the airplane actually is, we can use the scale and input our amount of inches that it is measured by. So, 1 inch equals to 6 feet. Our model plane is 8 inches. Now, we plug it in. 8 inches = 6(8)8 inches = 48 feet Therefore, the length of the real airplane is 48 feet.48 feet

Answer:48 feetStep-by-step explanation:Let's create a proportion using the following setup. inches/feet=inches/feet We know the scale is 1 inch to 6 feet. We also know that the plane is 8 inches long, but we don't know how many feet long it is, so we can say x feet. 1 inch/6 feet= 8 inches/ x feet 1/6=8/x Cross multiply. Multiply the numerator of the first fraction by the denominator of the second. Multiply the denominator of the first by the numerator of the second. 1*x=6*8 x=6*8 x=48 Add appropriate units, in this case: feet. x= 48 feet The actual airplane is 48 feet long.
