Lana's family is planning a rectangular garden. They make a scale diagram of the garden using a scale of 1 inch to 0.5 meter. If the length of the scale diagram is 24 inches, and its width is 16 inches, what is the perimeter of the actual garden? Please help me with this question.

Accepted Solution

So, when you find a perimeter, you add length+length+width+width= perimeter.So in your case, it would be 24 x 2 since there are 2 sides, and 16 x 2, then add the results. 48 + 32 = 80 inches. then convert to meters.
