Slide 6 ### Scale and Scale Drawings

A scale drawing is a two-dimensional drawing that accurately represents an object. The scale drawing is mathematically similar to the object.

A scale gives the ratio of the dimensions in the drawing to the dimensions of the object. All dimensions are reduced or enlarged using the same scale. Scales can use the same units or different units.

Slide 7 Reading Math

The scale a:b is read “a to b.” For example, the scale 1 cm:3 ft is read “one centimeter to three feet.”

### Scale - Interpretation

Slide 8 2 cm

Set up proportion using

8 m

1 cm

x m

scale length .

actual length

### Example: Using Proportions to Find Unknown Scales or Lengths

A. The length of an object on a scale drawing is 2 cm, and its actual length is 8 m. The scale is 1 cm: __ m. What is the scale?

=

1 8 = x 2

Find the cross products.

8 = 2x

4 = x

Solve the proportion.

The scale is 1 cm:4 m.

Slide 9 1.5 in.

### Example: Using Proportions to Find Unknown Scales or Lengths

B. The length of an object on a scale drawing is 1.5 inches. The scale is 1 in:6 ft. What is the actual length of the object?

=

1 x = 6 1.5

Find the cross products.

x = 9

Solve the proportion.

The actual length is 9 ft.

Slide 10 4 cm

Set up proportion using

12 m

1 cm

x m

scale length .

### Try This

A. The length of an object on a scale drawing is 4 cm, and its actual length is 12 m. The scale is 1 cm: __ m. What is the scale?

=

1 12 = x 4

Find the cross products.

12 = 4x

3 = x

Solve the proportion.

The scale is 1 cm:3 m.

Slide 11 2 in.

Set up proportion using

x ft

1 in.

4 ft

scale length .

actual length

### Try This

B. The length of an object on a scale drawing is 2 inches. The scale is 1 in:4 ft. What is the actual length of the object?

=

1 x = 4 2

Find the cross products.

x = 8

Solve the proportion.

The actual length is 8 ft.

Slide 12 ### Reductions and Enlargements

A scale drawing that is smaller than the actual object is called a reduction. A scale drawing can also be larger than the object. In this case, the drawing is referred to as an enlargement.

### Example: Life Sciences Application

Under a 1000:1 microscope view, an amoeba appears to have a length of 8 mm. What is its actual length?

1000 x = 1 8

Find the cross products.

x = 0.008

Solve the proportion.

The actual length of the amoeba is 0.008 mm.

Slide 14 1 mm

### Try This

Under a 10,000:1 microscope view, a fiber appears to have length of 1mm. What is its actual length?

10,000 x = 1 1

Find the cross products.

x = 0.0001

Solve the proportion.

The actual length of the fiber is 0.0001 mm.

Slide 15 A drawing that uses the scale in. = 1 ft is said to be in in. scale. Similarly, a drawing that uses the scale in. = 1 ft is in in. scale.
