### MEAP Preparation - Grade 7 Mathematics2.18 Representative Ratio

 Representative Ratio = Distance in a drawing or sketch : Actual distance on the ground. Example: A sketch is drawn to the scale 1 cm = 2 km, find the representative ratio. The scale on the sketch is,1 cm = 2 km. First, make all the units consistent, i.e., change 2 km into cm. i.e., 2 km = 2 x 1000m x 100cm = 200,000 cm. Therefore, the Representative Ratio = 1 : 200,000 Directions: Answer the following questions. Also write at least ten examples of your own.
