The blue print has a scale of 1:40. So every 1 inch represents 40 inches of the actual size.

so 6 inches represent 40*6 inches of the actual table = 240 inches

12 inches = 1 feet

so 240 inches = 240/12 = 20 feet.

Please let me know if you have any other questions and best me if you are satisfactory.
