Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we can make a proportion with this: \[\frac{ 1 inch }{ 40 feet } = \frac{ 6inches }{ x } \implies 40(6) = x \implies 240ft\] \[\frac{ 1inch }{ 40feet }=\frac{ 4inches }{ x } \implies 40(4) = x \implies 160ft\] now find the area: \[Area = length \times width\] \[Area = 240ft \times 160ft \]
