**Question 1.**

**A triangle ABC has been enlarged by scale factor m = 2.5 to the triangle A’ B’ C’. Calculate:**

**(i) the length of AB, if A’ B’ = 6 cm.**

**(ii) the length of C’ A’ if CA = 4 cm.**

**Solution:**

Scale factor (k) = 2.5

∆ABC is enlarged to ∆A’B’C’

(i) A’B’ = 6 cm

**Question 2.**

**A triangle LMN has been reduced by scale factor 0.8 to the triangle L’ M’ N’. Calculate:**

**(i) the length of M’ N’, if MN = 8 cm.**

**(ii) the length of LM, if L’ M’ = 5.4 cm.**

**Solution:**

∆LMN has been reduced by the scale factor

**Question 3.**

**A triangle ABC is enlarged, about the point O as centre of enlargement, and the scale factor is 3. Find:**

**(i) A’ B’, if AB = 4 cm.**

**(ii) BC, if B’ C’ = 15 cm.**

**(iii) OA, if OA’= 6 cm.**

**(iv) OC’, if OC = 21 cm.**

**Also, state the value of:**

**(a) \(\frac { OB’ }{ OB }\)**

**(b) \(\frac { C’A’ }{ CA }\)**

**Solution:**

∆ABC is enlarged to ∆A’B’C’ about the point O as its centre of enlargement.

Scale factor = 3 = \(\frac { 3 }{ 1 }\)

**Question 4.**

**A model of an aeroplane is made to a scale of 1 : 400. Calculate:**

**(i) the length, in cm, of the model; if the length of the aeroplane is 40 m.**

**(ii) the length, in m, of the aeroplane, if length of its model is 16 cm.**

**Solution:**

Model of an aeroplane to the actual = 1 : 400

**Question 5.**

**The dimensions of the model of a multistorey building are 1.2 m x 75 cm x 2 m. If the scale factor is 1 : 30; find the actual dimensions of the building.**

**Solution:**

Dimensions of a model of multistorey building = 1.2 m x 75 cm x 2 m

**Question 6.**

**On a map drawn to a scale of 1 : 2,50,000; a triangular plot of land has the following measurements : AB = 3 cm, BC = 4 cm and angle ABC = 90°.**

**Calculate:**

**(i) the actual lengths of AB and BC in km.**

**(ii) the area of the plot in sq. km.**

**Solution:**

Scale of map drawn of a triangular plot = 1 : 2,50,000

Measurement of plot AB = 3 cm, BC = 4 cm

and ∠ABC = 90°

**Question 7.**

**A model of a ship of made to a scale 1 : 300**

**(i) The length of the model of ship is 2 m. Calculate the lengths of the ship.**

**(ii) The area of the deck ship is 180,000 m². Calculate the area of the deck of the model.**

**(iii) The volume of the model in 6.5 m3. Calculate the volume of the ship. (2016)**

**Solution:**

**Question 8.**

**An aeroplane is 30 in long and its model is 15 cm long. If the total outer surface area of the model is 150 cm², find the cost of painting the outer surface of the aeroplane at the rate of ₹ 120 per sq.m. Given that 50 sq. m of the surface of the aeroplane is left for windows.**

**Solution:**

Length of aeroplane = 30 m = 3000 cm

and length of its model = 15 cm

Surface area of model = 150 cm²

Scale factor (k) = \(\frac { 3000 }{ 15 }\) = \(\frac { 200 }{ 1}\)

Area of plane = k² x area of model = (200)² x 150 cm² = 40000 x 150 cm²

\(\frac { 40000 x 150 }{ 10000 }\) = 600 m² (1 m² = 10000 cm²)

Shape left for windows = 50 sq. m

Balance area = 600 – 50 = 550 sq. m

Race of painting the outer surface = ₹ 120 per sq.m

Total cost = ₹ 550 x 120 = ₹ 66000
