Scale drawings allow us to accurately recreate real-life objects with fixed scale factors. But how can we accomplish this? Let''s find out:

Suppose our teacher asked us to draw a "model" of our school with all of its landmarks proportionally shown.

First, we need a scale factor. We also need to find the proportional distances between these landmarks.

Let''s say our scale factor is

1 cm:100 m

. If we know that the playground is 500 meters away from the music room, we know that in our scale model, we can draw this distance as 5 cm. We would continue this process until the entire scale drawing was complete.

If we wanted to create a scale drawing of a zoo with a scale factor of

1 cm: 400 m

, then how far apart are the lion''s cage and the snake area if they are 6cm apart in our drawing? All we need to do is multiply

6*400

to get a total distance of 2,400 meters. If an

First, convert the lengths to the same unit: The scale drawing has a length of 60 mm.

60/2 = 30

. The scale factor is therefore 30:1.
