n geography, you often want to locate an island, river, city or mountain in a certain place. You

ot see all of those objects in a whole. Therefore a

drawing (i.e a map) is made to represent the reality. This drawing is made to resemble the reality with a ratio (scale).

An architect who will build a building must make a scaled drawing which is usually called a design. The building and its design both have the same form but

are different in size.

You do so if you want to draw your classroom. The

classroom and your drawing both have the same form, but are different in size. The design and drawing are made the same as the reality with a ratio

(scale).

The figure on the next page is a map of the East

Kalimantan Province with a scale of 1 : 6,000,000. It means that 1

cm on the map represents 6,000,000 cm in the actual size. This scale

is a ratio of the size on the map to the actual size, or 6,000,000 cm

in reality will be drawn on the map as 1 cm.

Scale = Distance on the map : Real Distance

Scale 1 : 6,000,000

EXAMPLE 1

Look at the map of East Kalimantan. What is the distance between

Samarinda and Balikpapan?

On the map, measure the distance between Balikpapan and Samarinda.

The distance on the map is about 2.5 cm.

Scale 1 : 6,000,000

The real distance = 2.5 x 6,000,000 = 15,000,000

Therefore, the distance between Balikpapan and Samarinda is 15,000,000 cm = 150 km ( 1 km = 100,000 cm).

EXAMPLE 2

The distance between Samarinda and Tarakan in East Kalimantan

Province is 672 km. Find the distance between the cities on the map with the scale of 1 : 6,000,000.

Scale 1 : 6,000,000

Real distance

= 672 km

= 67,000,000 cm

The distance on the map is x cm.

Scale = Distance on the map : Real Distance

6 ,000 ,000

So, the distance between Samarinda and Tarakan on the map is about 11.2 cm.

EXAMPLE 3

On another map, the distance between Samarinda and Sangkulirang on the map is 6 cm. The real distance between those cities is 180 km. Find the scale of the map. Answer:

Distance on map = 6 cm Real distance = 180 km = 18,000,000 cm

Scale = Distance on the map : Real Distance

= 6 : 18,000,000

= 1 : 3,000,000

Simplify by dividing by 6

The scale of the map is 1 : 3,000,000. Try It Out!

Using the map of East Kalimantan Province,

map and the real distance between Samarinda and the following cities:

a) Tanjung Redeb

b) Tanjung Selor

c) Sengata

d) Bontang

e) Muaramawa

find the distance on the   Photos and Scaled Models

Do you know photographs (photos)? Of course you do. Photographs can be printed in a photo studio with certain sizes, such as 2 x 3 or 4 x 6. A 2 x 3 photo is similar to a 4 x 6 photo in shape, since the corresponding parts of both photos have the same ratio.

Before a plane or a car is constructed, usually a model of that plane or car is made. Parts of the plane or car have the same ratio as the corresponding parts (namely its height, width, and length) in the model.

186/Student’s Book - Proportion

Also, before a shopping centre or office building is

constructed, usually a model or design is made. The length of the model and the length of the building, the width of model and the

width of the building, and the height of the model and the height

of the building have the same ratio.

Length of model

Length of building

Width of model

EXAMPLE 4

The heights of a door and a window model are 8 cm and 4 cm,

respectively. The real height of the window is 1 m. What is the real height of the door?

The height of the door model is 8 cm.

The height of the window model is 4 cm.

The height of the window is 1 m = 100 cm.

The height of the door is x cm.

Height of the door model

Height of the door

Height of the window

 8 4 = x 100 4 x = 800 x = 200

The height of the door is 200 cm.

Try to solve that problem in another way.

EXAMPLE 5

The size of photo I is 4 × 6 and the

size of photo II is 2 × 3. What is the ratio of photo II to photo I? Photo I Photo II

The size of photo I is 4 x 6, which means 4 cm in width and 6 cm in length. The size of photo II is 2 x 3, which means 2 cm in width and 3 cm in length.

 The width of photo II = 2 = The width of photo I 4

The length of photo II =

and

The ratio of photo II to photo I is 1 : 2.

The size of photo II is as a result of the reduction of

1

2

times of

photo I; conversely, the size of photo I is the enlargement of 2 times of photo II.

Thus, the reduction factor of photo I to photo II is 2 . Meanwhile,

the enlargement factor of photo II to photo I is 2.

188/Student’s Book - Proportion 1. The figure below is a map of Central Kalimantan Province. Using a

ruler, measure the distances on the map. Find the real distances from

Palangkaraya to Pangkalanbun, Muarateweh, Buntok, Sampit and

Kualakapuas and then complete the following table.
