Answer:

1406.25 feet².

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that:

Area of soccer field=9000 sq yards;

Soccer field takes up 6 2/5 square inches on the map of park.

Hence,

9000 yd²=6 2/5 in².

Let 1 in² on map=m.

9000 yd²=32/5 in²,  (1)

m=1 in². (2)

Cross multiply:

6.4*m=9000;

m=9000/6.4;

m=1406.25.

Hence,

1 in² on map=1406.25 feet².
