This is the layout of the McDougal's backyard.The scale is 1 centimeters to 5 centimeters.The actual area of the pool is 375 square meters.The length of the pool is 25 meters.

How do I find the area of the pool on the layout?

  • Math -

    If you mean the scale is 1 centimeter to 5 meters, then:

    the width of the pool is 375 divided by 25 = 15 meters

    Therefore, the pool is 25m x 15m, or on the layout, 5cm x 3cm, using the 1cm:5m scale.

    The area of the pool on the layout is therefore 15 square centimeters.
