If his drawing is to scale, and his backyard is 28 feet wide, how many inches wide is his drawing? Write a proportion using words. Then, use the proportion to calculate the drawing width. Show your work. :D

okay so the ratio is\[drawing\over ~real\]\[10\over 40\]\[1\over 4\] and so we can plug in 28 into that and find the measurement to the drawing part:) \[{1\over4}={x\over28}\]solve and tell me what you get :)
