Question:

draw a scale giagram front view of the book case use scale1:10


Answer:

You didn’t include a diagram of the bookcase, but it will be easy for you to make a drawing with a ratio of 1:10.


Let’s say the bookcase is 2 meters high.

Using a ratio of 1 to 10, the height of your scale drawing will be:

2 meters * (1/10) = 0.2 meters (or 20 centimeters)

The same reasoning will hold true for the width of the bookcase. Suppose the bookcase is 1 ¼ meters wide.

Again, using a ratio of 1 to 10, the width of your scale drawing will be:

1.25 meters * (1/10) = 0.125 meters (or 12.5 centimeters)


This approach will work for every dimension on your scale drawing.






Thanks for writing.
