Giving medal to someone that can help me
Let x = length of the figure (on paper) \[\Large \frac{\text{distance on paper}}{\text{actual distance}}=\frac{\text{distance on paper}}{\text{actual distance}}\] \[\Large \frac{6 \text{ inches}}{30 \text{ feet}}=\frac{x \text{ inches}}{40 \text{ feet}}\] \[\Large \frac{6}{30}=\frac{x }{40}\] \[\Large 6*40 = 30*x\] keep going to solve for x
x=8
