The scale factor between figure A and figure B is zero point two five. If one side length of figure B is fiftysix yards, what is the corresponding side length of figure A?

So.. is A times 0.25 = B
If so, then A = 56/0.25
or is A/B = 0.25
If so, then A = B times 0.25
which gives us A = 56 times 0.25
