# A blueprint for a picnic table has a scale of 1:20. The table in the blueprint is 3 in. long. What is the length of the actual picnic table? A.) 5 feetB.) 720 feetC.) 5 inchesD.) 60 feet

Accepted Solution

A:

The blue print has a scale of 1:20. So every 1 inch represents 20 inches of the actual size. so 3 inches represents 20*3 of the actual table = 60 inches

12 inches is 1 feet

so 60 inches =60/12 = 5 feet

The correct answer is 5 feet.

12 inches is 1 feet

so 60 inches =60/12 = 5 feet

The correct answer is 5 feet.
