    Answer:

    1 square inch to 16 square feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The real patio area is

    20\cdot 16=320\ ft^2

    The dimensions of the scale drawing are

    20:4=5\ in\text{ and }16:4=4\ in,

    so the area of the scale patio is

    5\cdot 4=20\ in^2

    The ratio of the area of the scaled drawing to the actual area of the patio is

    20:320=1:16

    or 1 square inch to 16 square feet.
