I'm seriously math challenged, ya'll. I get that the box (from picture in back) is 1,20 meters (120 cm?). And the statue as measured on the page is 11 cm, but neither of those is the correct answer. I'm guessing something math-y is involved (i.e., imagining how much space the statue will take up inside the box?) gahhh. a little help?

Don't assume the crate in the photo has the statue in it.

If you measure the box pictured in the back, it is 4cm exactly.

Now you have to convert picture scale (4cm) to reality (120cm).

The statue is photographed, not to scale, but it has the same ratio as the photo in the back

Thanks for trying to help me.

Unfortunately, I have no idea how to calculate ratio or scale. My last math class was in the 1990s. Will Google.....*5 minutes later* aha! Okay, got it now. Thanks, Internet! By the way, this is a fun little book! Glad I did the Kickstarter.

The picture in the back takes a 120 cm crate and shrinks it down to a 4 cm image. 120/4 = 30. The picture is 30 times smaller than the original. If we assume the same for the statue, then the real artifact will be 30 times larger than whatever you measured for the photo
Let me know if that helps!

Excellent hints in the prior discussion. As a failsafe, the solution is below. DO NOT CLICK IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWER!!

And if you're interested in what the symbols on the statue mean, solve page 11 in Journal29. . .

The problem is that the picture on key 89 is 10.9cm and the photo in the back in 3.9cm. Printing error? Or are we to assume rounding?
