So I'm drawing a scale drawing of
A room (Yes, I know what a Scale drawing is) and I don't know how to do it adding proportions....
and what does it mean to
Use dimensions to scale the room?
Care to explain?

Convert all the dimensions of the room to whatever scale you are using.

That kind of helps...:)
but I need more info.
But I really, really appreciate you answering! 
What specific sort of info are you seeking?

Well, when you say:
"Convert all the dimensions of the room to whatever scale you are using"
can you really explain what that means?
I'm terrible at this!: 
How big do you want to make the drawing?
Suppose you wanted to make it no more than 8 inches by 8 inches. If you used a scale of inch on the drawing equal to 2 feet in the real room. If your room is 10 feet by 12 feet, your drawing would be 5 inches by 6 inches. 
Oh, thank goodness you answered
Ms. Sue. 
I did this yesterday and it took forever even with my tutor guiding me and then today I lost the scale page. Now I have to do it all over again. Oops! Good luck.

Bob is making a scale drawing of his garage which is 10 yards long.If 1/2 inch represents yard, how many inches long should the drawing be?
