  1. The model had measurement of
    4/25 m by 6/25m
    = .16 m by .24 m
    = 16 cm by 24 cm

    area = (16)(24) cm^2
    = 384 cm^2

    or
    area of actual room
    = 400 cm by 600 cm
    area = 240000 cm^2
    but areas are proportional to the square of the sides, so divide by 25^2 or 625
    to get 384 cm^2
