Dimensions of the tent

You and your friends decide to camp for one night. Look at the diagram of your tent below. It is drawn on 1 cm squared paper. The scale is 1 cm : 0.25 m

What are the dimensions of the tent’s porch area in metres?

m multiplied by
m

I am not sure how to work out the answer as got mild special needs

In the diagram, the porch is 4 cm by 10 cm, but the scale means that each cm represents 0.25 m, so 4 cm represents 1 m (because 4 × 0.25 = 1) and 10 cm represents 2.5 m.

Hence the porch measures 1 metre by 2.5 metres.
