**Reiny**, Thursday, February 19, 2009 at 2:01pmfirst of all: 6'3" = 6 1/4 feet = 25/4 feet

now set up a ratio

1"/2' = x"/(25/4)'

cross multiply (the units are the same, so we can drop them)

2x = 25/4

x = 25/8

so the scale for the length is 25/8 " or 3 1/8 inches

now do the same for the width
