Math Help please

posted by .

A living room has a length of 18.25 feet and a width of 12 1/2 feet. What would those dimensions be on the architectural drawings, if the scale of 1 ft = 1/4 inch is used? (your answers should be given in 16ths of an inch)

  • Math Help please -

    if 1 foot = 1/4 inch, then
    18.25 feet = 1/4(18.25) or 4 9/16 inches
    12.5 feet = 1/4(12.5) or 3 1/8 inches


    Argghh! Go metric !

    3/ 1/8 is not in 16th how do i get it to 16th

  • Math Help please -

    1/8 = 2/16

  • Math Help please -

    how would i find these with those answers :

    How many square feet are there? square feet (ROUND to the nearest WHOLE foot)

    If we added 10 % additional for waste, how many square feet should be ordered?

  • Math Help please -

    I got 228 ft squared

    and 251 feet should be ordered

    Is this right

  • Math Help please -

    area = length x width
    = 18.25 x 12.5 = 228.125 square feet
    or 228 square feet in whole numbers

    10% of 228 square feet is 22.8 square feet

    so the total is 228 + 23 = 251 square feet.
