A giant paper football field is made for the floor of the gym. The length of the gym is 90ft. Using this same scale, what is the width of the paper football field?

I am completely confused on this problem. Please help me.

  1. Looking it up on Google, the length of an NFL football field, not including the goal area, = 100 yards = 300 feet.

    Including the goal area = 120 yards = 360 feet

    Width = 53.33 yards = 160 feet

    90/(300 or 360) = x/160

    Multiply both sides by 160, then divide by 300 or 360, whichever you choose.
