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

#### Solution:

$a=8 \ m \rightarrow cm=8 \cdot \ 100 \ cm=800 \ cm \ \\ b=4 \ \text{cm} \ \\ \ \\ M=b/a=4/800=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 200 }=0.005$
$r=M=0.005=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 200 }=1:200$

Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
