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 picture. What is the drawing's scale factor?

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

Correct answer:

M =  0.005
r =  1:200

Step-by-step explanation:

a=8 m cm=8 100  cm=800 cm b=4 cm  M=b/a=4/800=2001=0.005
