## charlotte123 Group Title Gino designed a garden for his rectangular backyard. The design he drew on paper is 10 inches long. The length of his backyard is 40 feet. 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 one year ago one year ago

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 :)
