It always puzzles me when a student says they are having brain farts.

I wonder where their brains are located.

If you are having trouble with the fraction, get rid of it by multiplying both sides of the equation by 4:

$\frac{1}{4}"*4=1'*4$
So, $1"=4'$

If you have 2' you need to draw, just use a half-inch. And so on....
