1 inch: 2.5 yards

Step-by-step explanation:

Because if Paco did half of the dimensions then half of the scale is what he drew. To prove that I took a test and passed that question. lol

2:1 that is 2 inches in real life is equal to 1 inch in the drawing.

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given the following in the question:

Longest side of the pool = 10 inches

Longest side of the pool in drawing = 5 inches

Scale:

We find the ratio of the real length of pool and the measurement of the length of the pool in the drawing.

Thus, we can say Paco’s new drawing follows a scale of 2:1 that is 2 inches in real life is equal to 1 inch in the drawing.
