A square cushion measures 65 cm by 65 cm and 10 cm thick. Using a scale of 1:20 draw views of the cushion and label them with their measurements.

Can someone help me with this? How would I go about drawing them and using the scale for measurements?

  • Math -

    Let 20 cm be represented by 1 cm

    so 20/1 = 65/x
    20x = 65
    x = 3.25

    20/1 = 10/x
    x = .5

    draw you cushion as 3.25 by 3.25 by .5 cm

    thank you
