You draw the rectangle where the length is 5 and the width is 1

Part A) In the scale drawing the length of the swimming pool is 10 cm and the width is 5 cm

Part B) The actual length of the bus is 45 ft

Step-by-step explanation:

Part A) Make a scale drawing of the swimming pool where 1 centimeter represents 5 meters

we know that

The scale is $\frac{1}{5} \frac{cm}{m}$

To find out the dimensions of the pool in the scale drawing, multiply the actual dimensions by the scale factor

Find the length in the scale drawing

$\frac{1}{5} \frac{cm}{m}(50\ m)=10\ cm$

Find the width in the scale drawing

$\frac{1}{5} \frac{cm}{m}(25\ m)=5\ cm$

Part B) What is the actual length of the bus?

we know that

The scale is $\frac{0.5}{5} \frac{in}{ft}=0.1\frac{in}{ft}$

The length of the school bus is 4 1/2 inches on the scale drawing

To find out the actual length of the bus, divide the length in the scale drawing by the scale

Convert mixed number to an improper fraction

$4\frac{1}{2}\ in=\frac{4*2+1}{2}=\frac{9}{2}\ in$

Find the actual length of the bus

$\frac{\frac{9}{2}\ in}{0.1\frac{in}{ft}}=45\ ft$

10 cm and 5 cm.

Step-by-step explanation:

The length of a rectangular swimming pool = 50 meters

The width of the swimming pool = 25 meters

Scale is 1 centimeter = 5 meters

Then length of Scale drawing = $\frac{50}{5}$

= 10 centimeters

The width of scale drawing = $\frac{25}{5}$

= 5 centimeters

Therefore, the scale drawing of the swimming pool measures 10 cm in length and 5 cm in width.

10 cm and 5 cm.

Step-by-step explanation:

The length of a rectangular swimming pool = 50 meters

The width of the swimming pool = 25 meters

Scale is 1 centimeter = 5 meters

Then length of Scale drawing = $\frac{50}{5}$

= 10 centimeters

The width of scale drawing = $\frac{25}{5}$

= 5 centimeters

Therefore, the scale drawing of the swimming pool measures 10 cm in length and 5 cm in width.

The length in the drawing is 10 cm and the width is 5 cm

The drawing in the attached figure

Step-by-step explanation:

we know that

The scale is $\frac{1}{5}\frac{cm}{m}$

using proportion

Find out the dimensions of the swimming pool in the drawing

Length 50 m

Let

x -----> the length in the drawing

$\frac{1}{5}\frac{cm}{m}=\frac{x}{50}\frac{cm}{m}\\\\x=50/5\\\\x=10\ cm$

so

the length in the drawing is 10 cm

Width 25 m

Let

x -----> the width in the drawing

$\frac{1}{5}\frac{cm}{m}=\frac{x}{25}\frac{cm}{m}\\\\x=25/5\\\\x=5\ cm$

so

the width in the drawing is 5 cm

The drawn in the attached figure

$Arectangular swimming pool measures 50 meters in length and 25 meters in width. make a scale drawing$

we know that

The scale is $\frac{0.5}{5} \frac{in}{ft}=0.1\frac{in}{ft}$

The length of the school bus is 4 1/2 inches on the scale drawing

To find out the actual length of the bus, divide the length in the scale drawing by the scale

Convert mixed number to an improper fraction

$4\frac{1}{2}\ in=\frac{4*2+1}{2}=\frac{9}{2}\ in$

Find the actual length of the bus

$\frac{\frac{9}{2}\ in}{0.1\frac{in}{ft}}=45\ ft$
