On a given blueprint, 1 inch = 12 feet. If the dimensions of a recreation room on the blueprint are 2 inches × 1.75 inches, what are its actual measurements?
1 ft x 12 ft
6 ft x 7 ft
22 x 18 ft
24 ft x 21 ft
WHAT IS ANSWER HAVE NO IDEA PLZ!
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.
2 * 12 = 24
1.75 * 12 = 21
that made so much sense
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.
