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)

  1. 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 !

  5. 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.
