On Sandy's scale drawing of the school campus, 3 inches equals 6 yards. The distance between the swings and the track is 15 inches on the drawing, and the distance between the track and the basketball court is 6 inches on the drawing. How much farther is the track from the swings than from the basketball court, in actual distance?

The scale presented is that 3 inches = 6 yards. In the drawing, the distance of  Swing to Track = 15 inches Track to Basketball Court = 6 inches The actual distance of swing to track is = 15 in / 3 in * 6 yards = 30 yards. The actual distance of Track to basketball court is  = 6 in / 3 in * 6 yards = 12 yards. Difference = 30 yards - 12 yards Difference = 18 yards The track to swing is 18 yards further than track to basketball court.
