@Astrophysics please help

@geny55, how come you didn't answer my question?

- anonymous

i figured it out, thanks for the help :)

@Astrophysics please help

What do you need help with?

- anonymous

im sorry i was asking @Astrophysics

- Astrophysics

Lol, well they tell us the scale is 1:20 right? So any idea what that means

- anonymous

If its 1:20 then you do 4 x 5 which equals 20

- Astrophysics

Ok well the 4 x 5 = 20 is the area, so we have 20 inches^2 now we are given that the scale is 1:20, which tells us the figure is only 1/20 size of the original.
So it's probably easier if you do \[4 \times 20\] and \[5 \times 20 \] first then convert it to inches.

- Astrophysics

convert it to feet*
OR you can find area then convert to square feet, doesn't matter

- anonymous

ok can you do the work in steps so that i understand it better?

- Astrophysics

Well I mean we are given that the dimensions are 4 by 5 inches, and the proportion is 1/20, we want its original size but in square feet, so notice there's two things to this problem. So we can start off by multiplying 4 and 5 by 20 to get the original scale right? \[4 \times 20 = 80~~~~\text{and}~~~5 \times 20 = 100 \] but note these dimensions are still in inches, you can now convert it to feet then find the area which is just \[A = lw\] or you can find area first and convert it to square feet.
I think I'll leave the rest to you.

whats step 1, lets start with that

- Hero

@geny55, remember the purpose of Open Study is to give help, not answers. Asking for steps is equivalent to asking for answers.

- Astrophysics

I think there is enough information here already, you should try to figure it out on your own now :), good luck.
