For every 5 feet, the scale drawing is 1 unit.  So we divide the dimensions by 5 to get the dimensions of the scale drawing. 120/5 = 24 1:5 = x:120  There are 24 5's in 120 so the new ratio is 24:120 75/5 = 15 1:5 = x:75  There are 15 5's in 75 so the new ratio is 15:75 The dimensions of the scale drawing is 24 units by 15 units.
