Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are 5280 feet in a mile, subtract 700 (350 * 2) for two of the sides. remaining is 4580 feet, divide by two to find one of the lengths. the actual perimeter and the one on the map are proportional, so I divided 2290 by 10 (inches)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First convert the perimeter from 1/4 mi to feet. There is 5,280 feet in a mile so the perimeter is 1,320 feet. Now set up the proportion 10:1320 ::x:350 1320x=3500 x=2.65 in.
