    Hello Turbo Monarch!

    Thank you for using our services 😉

    In this case, since we know that one inch on the plan corresponds to 5 feet in real life, you can multiply the number of inches by 5 to know the number of feet representing 4 inches.

    After knowing the measure of each side of the room in real life, you can calculate the value of the area.

    I hope this will help! Feel free to ask any other question!
