Tessa drew a scale drawing of an arcade. she used the scale 1 inch to 5 feet. if an air hockey table is 2 inches in the drawing, how long is the actual air hockey table

So this isn't too bad.  We just want to set up a proportion sice the scale factor will be the same for both.  So:

1/5=2/x

Cross multiply

x=10

So the air hockey table is 10 feet long.
