Daniel needed to paint his patio, so he made a scale drawing of it. He knows the width of the patio is feet, but the scale drawing is in inches.

  1. Find the length of the patio in feet.

    Find the ratio between two corresponding sides and use it to create a proportion or to multiply as a scale factor and find the missing length.


  2. Find the area of the patio so Daniel knows how much paint to buy.

    Use the dimensions of the patio to find the area by multiplying.

    Patio Area: square feet

  3. One can of paint covers square feet. How many cans of paint will Daniel need to buy?

    If each can of paint covers square feet, how many cans are needed to cover  square feet?
