Two rounds fountains are similar. One measures 5'6 across and the other measure 12'5" across. Find the scale factor from the small one to the large one. How do u go about finding the answer to this.

First you should convert both values to inches: 5'6" = 66 inches 12'5" = 149 inches The scale factor from the small one to the large one will be 66:149 => 66/149 => 0.4423. In essence, that means that the smaller one is 44.23 % smaller than the large one.
