1. 75/2 = 37.5 feet = 1 inch

37.5 * 8 = 300 feet
37.5 * 3 = 112.5 feet

A = LW

A = 300 * 112.5

A = ________ square feet

2. if 2 in equals 75 ft, then 8 in equals 4 times 75

do the same conversion for 3 in

area of the park is length times width

3. If 2 inches=75 feet Then solve by proporti
8 inches=(75/2)*4=300 feet and
3 inches=(75/2)*3=112.5 feet.
Therefore since
Area=length*width
Do Area=actual length*actual width
=300*112.5=33750 feet^2
I hope u understand this method.
