Scale Drawings Worksheets
How to Create Scale Drawings -
It does not come as a surprise that sometimes, drawing the actual size of a real-life object is not possible. It is either too big for the paper or too small. So, what do we do if a mathematical question involves drawing a real-life object?
It is where scaled drawings come in.
Consider you have to draw a rectangular flowerpot that is 60cm long and 30cm wide. You have to draw this on a basic A4-size sheet. You choose a suitable scale. If you are using a basic cm-inch basic ruler, you know that it is usually 15cm long.
Considering all these factors, I decided to represent 1 cm by 5cm. Which means if I have to draw a 5cm real-life line, I will draw a 1cm line on my A4-size sheet.
Now what you have to do; use a Unitary method to solve it;
1 cm = 5 cm
x cm = 30 cm
y cm = 60 cm
By doing this, we know that to represent the length of the flower pot, we need to draw a 12 cm line, and for the height, we need to draw 6 cm line.
Fun thought of the day...
Math is like love;
a simple idea,
but it can get complicated.
