    Answer:
    365 and 1/2 blocks will be used
    The scale fact is 0.25
    Step-by-step explanation:
    So . .
    • We create a ratio 1:2
    This represents 1 block is equivalent to 2 feet
    • Simply 1450 ÷ 2 = 725
    So . . There are 725 feet and because One block is equal to 2 feet you divide 725 ÷ 2 =  362.5 blocks will be used
    To find the scale factor simply divide the deminsions of the new shape by old
    • 362.5 ÷ 1450 = .25
