    An inch on the floor plan is 6 feet in real life. So 1/4 inch = 6/4 feet = 1.5 feet 1/3 inch = 6/3 feet = 2 feet

    1 in = 6 ft \[\frac{ 1 ~inch}{ 6~ft } = 1\] so you can multiply your dimensions by that ratio, same as multiplying by 1, so the units work out correctly

    \[\frac{ 1/4~inch }{ 1 } *\frac{ 6~ft }{ 1~inch} = \]
