Answer

The area of the real rug is 100 times greater than the area of the drawing of the rug.

Work Step by Step

Step 1) 4 x 7.5 = 30 ... This step finds the area for the drawing of the rug. Step 2) 4 x 10 = 40 ... This step finds the area for the actual rug. 7.5 x 10 = 75 40 x 75 = 3000 Step 3) 3000/30 = 100 ... This step helps to find out how many times greater the real rug is than the drawn rug.
