scale scale shows how lengths on bridge are reduced in drawing Scale: 1cm : 10m SEE ALSO 104–105 Enlargements Circles 138–139 56–59 Ratio and proportion convert scale to ratio of 1cm : 1,000cm using centimetres as common unit To make an accurate plan of a large object, such as a bridge, the object’s measurements need to be scaled down. To do this, every measurement of the bridge is reduced by the same ratio. The ﬁrst step in creating a scale drawing is to choose a scale – for
into the formula – the radius is 2.5 in this example; half the diameter. Multiply the radius by itself (square it) as shown by the formula – this makes the last multiplication simpler. Rearrange the formula so r is on its own on one side – divide both sides by 3.14. area = 3.14 × 2.52 the radius is half the diameter: 5 ÷ 2 = 2.5 Round the answer, and switch the sides so that the unknown, r, is shown first. π is 3.14 to 3 signiﬁcant ﬁgures area = 3.14 × 6.25 2.5 × 2.5 = 6.25 19.6349... is
the surface area of a cone Area = π × r × h surface area of cone without base To find the area of the cone, multiply π by the radius and slant length. 3.14 × 3.9 × 9 = 110.21cm π×r 2 formula for area of a circle surface area of base To find the area of the base, use the formula for the area of a circle, π × r2 . NT H EIGH T 9c m ▷ Cone base is circle Find the surface area of a cone by using formulas to find the area of the cone shape and the area of the base, and adding the two. 3 ×
7 has been added to this side, which cancels out –7, leaving 2x on its own x 2 + 11x + 20 = 2x adding –2x to 11x gives 9x Next, move the term multiplied by x to the left of the equals sign by adding its opposite to both sides of the equation. In this case, 2x is moved by subtracting 2x from both sides. x 2 + 9x + 20 = 0 subtracting 2x from this side cancels out 2x add the factors to ﬁnd their sum list possible factors of c (20) Factors of +20 It is now possible to solve the equation by
