Q:
# The scale factor of a room for a scale drawing is 2.3. The actual length of a wall in the room is 46 feet and the actual width of the room is 69 feet. What is the area of the scale drawing?

Accepted Solution

A:

There's two ways to solve this.

First way:

Let's divide the width and length by 2.3.

46÷2.3=20

69÷2.3=30

20×30

600 ft²

Second Way:

Let's find the area of the actual room.

46×69

3,174 ft²

Let's find the scale drawing squared.

2.3²=5.29

3,174÷5.29

600 ft²
