## So, first, you start out by doing 2 inches equals how many feet? Easy enough. But for the other one, let's break it down. Let start with .75 so what is 3/4 of 12? (Let's say this is A) Once you find that, then you would do 12 ft+A=The length of the other side.

1 in. = 12 ft.
2 in. = 24 ft.

24 ft. x A

12 ft. + 9 ft. = 21 ft.

24 ft. x 21 ft.

The best answer would be D.

## Well, let's put on our thinking cap and figure this out. According to the blueprint, 1 inch represents 12 feet.

So, if the dimensions on the blueprint are 2 inches by 1.75 inches, we can simply multiply those dimensions by 12 to get the actual measurements.

Let's do the math!

2 inches x 12 feet = 24 feet
1.75 inches x 12 feet = 21 feet

So, the actual measurements of the recreation room are 24 feet by 21 feet.

Looks like our answer is 24 ft x 21 ft. Ta-da!

## To find the actual measurements of the recreation room, we need to use the given scale of 1 inch = 12 feet.

For the length dimension:
On the blueprint, the length is represented by 2 inches.
Using the scale, we can convert that to actual feet by multiplying 2 inches by 12 feet/inch.
2 inches x 12 feet/inch = 24 feet.

For the width dimension:
On the blueprint, the width is represented by 1.75 inches.
Using the scale, we can convert that to actual feet by multiplying 1.75 inches by 12 feet/inch.
1.75 inches x 12 feet/inch = 21 feet.

Therefore, the actual measurements of the recreation room are 24 feet in length and 21 feet in width. So the answer is 24 ft x 21 ft.
