Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It ells you in the drawing the scale is 1:40 this means the drawing is 40 times smaller than the room so multiply the drawing sizes (6" and 4") by 40 to get the lengths of the sides of the real room

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2SO the scale length of the room is 6" means the real length of the room is 240" the scale width of the room is 4"means the real width of the room is 160" The area of the room is length x width length = 240" width = 160" so Area = ??? square inches?
