Marlon drew a scale drawing of a summer camp. In real life, the sand volleyball court is 8 meters wide. It is 4 centimeters wide in the drawing. What is the drawing's scale factor?

Simplify your answer and write it as a ratio, using a colon.

Correct result:

M =  0.005
r =  1:200


r=M=0.005=1200=1:200r=M=0.005=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 200 }=1:200
