Height of the Moai statue in inches = 4.5

Height of tourist in inches = 1.25

Actual height of Moai statue in meters = 6.0

Actual height of tourist in meters = x

Comparing the height to the actual height of both the Moai statue and the tourist yields:

4.5/6.0 = 1.25/x

cross multiply

4.5x = 7.5

x = 7.5/4.5

x = 1.67

Therefore, the actual height of the tourist in meters is 1.67 meters (m)
