What you really need to know!
A scale drawing
represents something
that is too large or too
small to be drawn at
actual size.
What you really need to know!
A scale model can
be used to represent
something that is too
large or too small for
an actual-size model.
What you really need to know!
The scale gives the
relationship between
the drawing/model
measure and the
actual measure.
Example 1:
On the map,
the distance
between
Portland and
Olympia is
inches. What
is the actual
distance?

Example 2:
On the blueprint of
a new house, onequarter inch
represents 2 ½
feet. If the length
of a bedroom on
the blueprint is 1 ½

Example 4:
A model is being created from a
picture frame which has a width
of 4 ¾ inches. If the scale to be
used is 8 inches = 1 inch, what is
the length of the model?
Important Knowledge:
Scales are always given
with the real item as the
denominator.

A rate is a ratio that compares
quantities with different labels.
A unit rate is a rate that is simplified so
that the denominator is 1.

A rate is a ratio that
compares quantities with
different units, such as
16feet/8seconds.
A unit rate is a rate that is
simplified so that it has a
denominator of 1 unit, such
as 2feet/1second.
In a proportion, the cross
product is the product of the
numerator of one ratio and
the denominator of the other
ratio.
In a proportion, a cross product is the
product of the numerator of one ratio
and the denominator of the other ratio.
