To find the scale factor, divide the length of the actual snake by the length of the scale model:

Scale Factor = Length of Actual Snake / Length of Scale Model

Given: Length of Actual Snake = 4 feet Length of Scale Model = 2 inches

Convert feet to inches (1 foot = 12 inches): 4 feet = 4 * 12 = 48 inches

Scale Factor = 48 inches / 2 inches = 24

Therefore, the scale factor is 24.
