# A giant paper football field is made for the floor of the gym. The length of the gym is 90ft. Using this same scale, what is the width of the paper football field?

I am completely confused on this problem. Please help me.

## IN my math book it says that the field is 160 ft by 360 feet.

## To find the width of the paper football field, we need to determine the scale or ratio between the length of the gym and the width of the paper football field.

Since the problem tells us that the length of the gym is 90ft, we can use this information to establish the scale. However, the problem doesn't provide the actual dimensions of the paper football field, so we can't determine the width directly.

If you can provide any additional information or constraints regarding the paper football field, I will be able to help you further.

## To find the width of the paper football field, we need to understand the scale ratio between the gym's length and the field's width.

Given:

- Length of the gym: 90ft

Assuming the paper football field is proportional to the gym, we can assume a scale ratio between them.

Let's consider a typical football field, which has a length of 100 yards (300ft) and a width of 53.3 yards (160ft). Now, we need to compare the length of the gym (90ft) to the length of a football field (300ft).

Scale ratio = Length of the gym / Length of the football field

= 90ft / 300ft

= 3ft / 10ft

Since the scale ratio is 3ft to 10ft, we can use this ratio to find the width of the paper football field on the same scale.

Width of the paper football field = (3ft / 10ft) * (width of the football field)

Using the width of a typical football field, we can calculate the width of the paper football field:

Width of the paper football field = (3ft / 10ft) * (160ft)

= (3 * 160) / 10

= 48ft

Therefore, the width of the paper football field, on the same scale, is 48ft.

## Looking it up on Google, the length of an NFL football field, not including the goal area, = 100 yards = 300 feet.

Including the goal area = 120 yards = 360 feet

Width = 53.33 yards = 160 feet

90/(300 or 360) = x/160

Multiply both sides by 160, then divide by 300 or 360, whichever you choose.
