You and your friends decide to camp for one night. Look at the diagram of your tent below. It is drawn on 1 cm squared paper. The scale is 1 cm : 0.25 m

What are the dimensions of the tent’s porch area in metres?

It's actually 4 cm X 10 cm, since each square on the grid is 1 cm X 1 cm. So, using the given scale ratio, can you convert these dimensions to the dimensions they represent in the real world?

Okay, we are given the scale:

1 cm: 0.25 m

If we multiply by 4, we get:

4 cm: 1 m

This tells us that 4 cm on the grid represents 1 m in real life. What do you get when you take the original scale and multiply by 10?
