An interior designer sketches a design for a rectangular rug. The dimensions of the sketch are 4 inches by 7.5 inches. The dimensions of the actual rug will be ten times the dimensions of the drawing, so the scale of the drawing is 1:10. How many times the area of the sketch is the area of the actual rug?
