Q:
# SOS I NEED HELP ON THIS PROBLEM!!

Accepted Solution

A:

Scale - Convert to meters and reduced it to 1 cm:

3 cm : 1000 cm | GIven

3 cm : 10m | Convert 1000cm to 10m

1 cm: 10/3 m | Find 1 cm

Convert the dimensions to the actual:

7.5 cm = 7.5 x 10/3 = 25m | Convert 7.5cm on map to actual distance

15 cm = 15 x 10/3 = 50m | Convert 15m on map to actual distance²

Find area of the actual pool:

Area = 25 x 50 = 1250 m² | Use the formula Area = Length x Width

Answer: 1250 m²

3 cm : 1000 cm | GIven

3 cm : 10m | Convert 1000cm to 10m

1 cm: 10/3 m | Find 1 cm

Convert the dimensions to the actual:

7.5 cm = 7.5 x 10/3 = 25m | Convert 7.5cm on map to actual distance

15 cm = 15 x 10/3 = 50m | Convert 15m on map to actual distance²

Find area of the actual pool:
