` 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.
