Gino designed a garden for his rectangular backyard. The design he drew on paper is ten inches long. The length of his backyard is fifty feet. If his drawing is to scale and is 9 inches wide, how many feet wide is his backyard? Write a proportion using words. Then, use the proportion to calculate the yard width. Show your work.

    ` The design he drew on paper is ten inches long. The length of his backyard is fifty feet. ` that means 10 inches in design represents 50 feet in garden, right ?

    Ok because were assuming the design is to scale we see that 10 inches = 50 feet so if we have nine inches we first want to find how many feet to every inch all we need to do is divide fifty by 10 we get 1 inch = 10 feet. so then all you need to do is multiply 9 by ten and you have the width.
