On the scale drawing of a floor plan 2 inches= 5 ft. A room is 7 inches long on the scale drawing. Find the actual length of the room.

  • Geometry -

    2 / 5 = 7 / x Multiply both sides by x

    2 x / 5 = 7 Multiply both sides by 5

    2 x = 7 * 5

    2 x = 35 Divide both sides by 2

    x = 35 / 2

    x = 17.5 ft
