The Johnson’s have a square rug in their living room that is 36 ft2. For Christmas, they are building a dollhouse for their daughter. Its linear dimensions are exactly 60 times smaller than their actual house. In the dollhouse, what are the dimensions of the rug (in inches)? [12 inches in 1 foot]

Find the dimensions of the real rug. Area of a square = length * width. Multiply the dimensions of the real rug by the scale factor to find the dimensions of the dollhouse rug.
