So find out how many 1/4 inches there are in 9 inches first off. To make it simpler just think, there are 4 fourths in one inch. 4*9 is 36. The next step is to find out what 36 times 15 is, since there are 15 ft per 1/4 inch. 36*15=540. Therefore, there are 540 feet in the actual figure.
The actual measurement of the figure is 270 feet. To get this answer, you find the actual measurement of one inch in the scale drawing using the value of the inch that has been provided. The answer for 1 inch is 30 feet. Multiplying this by 9 inches gives you 270 as the answer.
