#### Answer:

81 in. (6.75 ft.) by 60 in. (5 ft.)

#### Explanation:

**First, convert 27 ft. and 20 ft. to inches to make it easier to work with. This would convert like this**:

27 ft. x 12 in.

20 ft. x 12 in.

*This also means that the scale converts to 1/4 in. = 12 in.*

**Now, take your 324 in. and 240 in. and apply them to the scale.**

*For every 12 in. (1 ft.) in the non-scale room dimensions, there will be one 1/4 in. on the scale. That would apply like this:*

324 in. (27 ft.) x

240 in. (20 ft.) x
