Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The scaling used is such that 60 ft of actual walkaway is equivalent to 4 in of scaled down walkaway. The total walkaway of scaled down version is 3 + 4 + 2 + 2 = 11 in. Now to convert it to actual walkaway we have to first convert it into feet and then multiply by the scaling factor. 11 in = 11 * .0833 = 0.9167 ft Now the actual walkaway if 0.9167/4*60 = 13.74 ft

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry one thing is wrong here. The last step should be: Now the actual walkaway if 0.9167/0.3333*60 = 165.02 ft
