Given dimensions are - 

Length = 20 ft

Width = 16 ft

so, Area = 20*16 ft sq = 320 ft sq

scale: 1 in = 4 feet

So, scaled length = 20/4 in = 5 in

scaled width = 16/4 = 4 in

scaled area = 5*4 in sq

scaled area = 20 in sq

so scaled area of 20 in sq is equal to 320 ft sq

thus, 1 square inch is equal to 320/20 ft sq

1 sq in = 16 ft sq

Thus, answer is 16
