$x=35$ feet

Work Step by Step

The problem can be solved using the following proportion: $\frac{3.5ft}{60in}=\frac{x}{50ft}$ first, convert all measurements to feet, by dividing inches by 12. $\frac{3.5ft}{5ft}=\frac{x}{50ft}$ Cross multiply $5*x=3.5*50$ multiply $5x=175$ divide both sides by 5 $x=35$ feet
