I don't get this problem either!?

    It would seem that since it is a square you would just do 0.5 times 4 which is 2 inches.

    the perimeter of the scale of the chip is 32 inches long

    the perimeter of the actual size is .5*4=2inches

    the scale is 1/16

    The actual chip has a side of 0.5", therefore the perimeter is 2"

    well its a square, so its 0.5x4=2 inches, and the scale is 16 times bigger than the actual chip, so the scale is 16x2=32 inches
