Ellen made a scale drawing of a swimming pool. She used the scale 2 inches = 1 foot. The diving board is 19 feet long in real life. How long is the diving board in the drawing?

The scale is: 2 inches =1 foot =12 inches, or:

1 inches = 6 inches

19 x 12 =228 inches - the length of the diving board.

228 / 6 =38 inches - length of the diving board on the drawing.
