    Step-by-step explanation: Two water fountains are 10 inches apart on a scale of drawing museum

    The actual distance between them is 400 feet.

    On the same drawing, the distance between two exhibits is 3.125 inches.

    To Find : What is the actual distance between these two exhibits?

    Since Two water fountains are 10 inches apart on a scale of drawing museum and The actual distance between them is 400 feet.

    ⇒ 10 inches = 400 feet

    So, 1 inch = 400/10

    ⇒1 inch = 40 feet

    Since we are given that  the distance between two exhibits is 3.125 inches.

    So , the actual distance between two exhibits (i.e.in feet ) (Using 1 inch = 40 feet)

    = 3.215*40

    = 125 feet

    Thus , The actual distance between these two exhibits = 125 feet.
