Calvin made a scale model of the plane shown.

I can… use the key in a scale drawing to find missing measures.

A. How can you represent the relationship between the model of the plane and the actual plane?

Answer:

The given figure is:

Now,

The representation of the relationship between the model of the plane and the actual plane is:

The actual diagram is an enlarged diagram of the scale diagram

So,

The scale factor = \(\frac{15 in.}{240 ft}\)

= \(\frac{1}{16}\)

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the actual diagram is 16 times larger than the scale diagram

B. What do you notice about the relationship between the model of the plane and the actual plane?

Answer:

We know that,

The relationship between the model of the plane and the actual plane can be given by a “Scale factor”

So,

The scale factor = \(\frac{15 in.}{240 ft}\)

= \(\frac{1}{16}\)

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the actual diagram is 16 times larger than the scale diagram

**Focus on math practices**

**Look for Relationships** If the model and the actual plane are to scale, what do you know about the relationship between all the other parts of the model and the actual plane, aside from the total length?

Answer:

If the model and the actual plane are to scale, then

All the other parts of the model and the actual plane, aside from the total length are also scaled

**Essential Question**

How do scale drawings and actual measurements represent proportional relationships?

Answer:

The “Scale factor” is the amount that an image is enlarged or shrunk. It is also called ‘k’ because k represents the multiplier between two proportional ratios and scale drawings represent proportional relationships

**Try It!**

What is the actual width, w, of the island if the width in the drawing is 2.5 inches?

The actual width of the island is _______ feet.

Answer:

From Example 1,

It is given that,

Scale: 1 inch = 1.5 ft

Now,

\(\frac{1.5}{1}\) = \(\frac{w}{2.5}\)

w = \(\frac{1.5 × 2.5}{1}\)

w = 3.75 feet

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the actual width of the island is: 3.75 feet

**Convince Me!** How would the proportion for Example 1 change if the scale changed?

Answer:

For Example 1,

If the scale changed, then

The proportion would increase or decrease

Case 1:

If the scale changed to:

1 in = 2 ft

Then, the proportion will change like

\(\frac{2}{1}\) = \(\frac{x}{6}\)

x = \(\frac{6 × 2}{1}\)

x = 12 feet

So,

The actual width of the island is: 12 feet

Case 2:

If the scale changed to:

1 in = 1.25 ft

Then, the proportion will change like

\(\frac{1.25}{1}\) = \(\frac{x}{6}\)

x = \(\frac{6 × 1.25}{1}\)

x = 7.5 feet

So,

The actual width of the island is: 7.5 feet

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

If the scale increases, then the proportion also increases

If the scale decreases, then the proportion also decreases

**Try It!**

The scale drawing shown represents an existing barn. The shortest side of the barn measures 150 meters. If a new barn that is \(\frac{2}{3}\) its size replaces the existing barn, what will be the scale of this drawing to the new barn?

Answer:

It is given that

The scale drawing shown represents an existing barn. The shortest side of the barn measures 150 meters and a new barn that is \(\frac{2}{3}\) its size replaces the existing barn

Now,

The representation of the existing barn is:

Now,

The length of the shortest side for a new barn = \(\frac{2}{3}\) × 150

= 100 in.

So,

The scale factor for the shortest side for a new barn = \(\frac{150}{100}\)

= 1.5

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

The scale of the drawing to the new barn is 1: 1.5

**KEY CONCEPT**

The scale factor of a scale drawing is the ratio of an actual length, y, to the corresponding length, x, in the drawing. The ratio is the constant of proportionality, k, that relates the actual figure to the scale drawing. You can use a proportion or use an equation of the form y = kx to solve problems involving scale drawings.

**Do You Understand?**

Question 1.

**Essential Question** How do scale drawings and actual measurements represent proportional relationships?

Answer:

The “Scale factor” is the amount that an image is enlarged or shrunk. It is also called “k” because k represents the multiplier between two proportional ratios and scale drawings represent proportional relationships

Question 2.

**Generalize** Describe the ratio of corresponding measures in scale drawings and the actual measures they represent?

Answer:

A scale drawing is a drawing that is to scale an original image. When an object is “to scale,” that means it is the same shape, but not the same size. It is also called k because k represents the multiplier between two proportional ratios and scale drawings represent proportional relationships.

\(\frac{1 \mathrm{in.}}{4.5 \mathrm{in.}}=\frac{50 \mathrm{mi}}{x \mathrm{mi}}\)

Explain why her proportion is equivalent to

\(\frac{50 \mathrm{mi}}{1 \text { in. }}=\frac{x \mathrm{mi}}{4.5 \mathrm{in} .}\)

Answer:

It is given that

Reasoning Mikayla is determining the actual distance between Harrisville and Lake Town using a map. The scale on her map reads. 1 inch = 50 miles. She measures the distance to be 4.5 inches

So,

The scale for the distance between Harrisville and Lake Town using a map is: 50: 1

Now,

Let the value that is equivalent to 4.5 inches be x miles

Now,

To find the value in miles that is equivalent to 4.5 inches,

We have to write

\(\frac{1 in.}{4.5 in.}\) = \(\frac{50 mi}{x mi}\)

Now,

Cross-Multiply the given equation

So,

\(\frac{50 mi}{1 in.}\) = \(\frac{x miles}{4.5 in.}\)

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the proportion is in the above form because of the cross-multiplication

So,

The actual base length of the given triangle = (The base length as depicted in the given triangle) × (Scale factor)

= 2.5 × \(\frac{2}{1}\)

= 2.5 × 2

= 5 m.

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

The actual base length of the triangle as depicted in the given scale drawing is: 5 m

Question 5.

What is the area of the actual square window shown in the scale drawing?

So,

The actual side length of the given square window = (The side length of the given square window) × (Scale factor)

= 0.75 × 2

= 15 m

Now,

We know that,

The area of a square = Side²

So,

The area of the actual square window = (Actual Side length of the given square window)²

= 15 m × 15 m

= 225 m²

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the area of the actual square window is: 225 m²

Question 6.

A distance of 30 miles on a map is represented by a 2-inch line. If the map is enlarged to 3 times its size, what will be the scale of the enlarged map?

Answer:

It is given that

A distance of 30 miles on a map is represented by a 2-inch line and the map is enlarged to 3 times its size

Now,

The scale distance on a map = \(\frac{Actual distance on a map}{Scale of a map}\)

= \(\frac{30}{2}\)

= 15 inches

Now,

The scale distance on the enlarged map = (The scale distance on a normal map) × 3

= 15 × 3

= 45 inches

So,

The scale of the enlarged map = \(\frac{45}{3}\)

= 15

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the scale of the enlarged map is: 1inch = 15 miles

Answer:

It is given that

A map of a highway has a scale of 2 inches equals 33 miles. The length of the highway on the map is 6 inches. There are 11 rest stops equally spaced on the highway, including one at each end. You are making a new map with a scale of 1 inch equals 30 miles

So,

The actual length of the highway according to the scale of 2 in = 33 miles is:

The actual length of the highway = (Scale factor) × (The length of the highway on the map)

= \(\frac{33}{2}\) × 6

= 33 ×3

= 99 miles

The actual length of the highway according to the scale of 1 in = 30 miles is:

The actual length of the highway = (Scale factor) × (The length of the highway on the map)

= \(\frac{30}{1}\) × 6

= 30 ×6

= 180 miles

Now,

Let the number of stops on the highway with a scale of 1 in = 30 miles be x

So,

\(\frac{99}{11}\) = \(\frac{180}{x}\)

\(\frac{180}{x}\) = 9

x = \(\frac{180}{9}\)

x = 20 stops

Now,

The distance between the rest stops = \(\frac{30}{20}\)

= 1.5 feet

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

The distance between the rest stops on the new map are 1.5 feet

The two side lengths of the triangle are: 6 inches and 6 inches

The non-included angle is: 60°

Now,

We know that,

As the two side lengths are the same, the triangle will be an “Isosceles Triangle”

So,

Besides the given angle measure, the other two angle measures must be the same

Since the two angles are already given, therefore the value of the third angle is already fixed. That is, the third angle is the difference between 180° and the sum of the two angles. If the angles and the side lengths are given, then we can form any number of angles as long as the ratio of angles are consistent

Question 10.

If you form a triangle from two given angle measures and the length of the included side, will you always get one triangle or will you get more than one triangle?

Answer:

It is not always possible to construct a triangle from a given side length and two angles. If the two given angles add to more than 180°, then the sides of the triangle will diverge and never meet.

**Explore It!**

The intersecting skis form four angles.

I can… solve problems involving angle relationships.

A. List all the pairs of angles that share a ray.

Answer:

It is given that the intersecting skis form four angles.

Now,

The representation of the intersecting skies and the angles made by intersection are:

Hence, from the above figure,

We can conclude that the angles that share a ray are:

∠1, ∠2, ∠3, and ∠4

B. Suppose the measure of Z1 increases. What happens to the size of ∠2? ∠3?

Answer:

From the given figure,

We can observe that ∠1 and ∠2 are on the same side and they are known as “Adjacent angles”

We can observe that ∠1 and ∠3 are on the opposite sides of the ray and they are known as “Vertical angles”

Now,

We know that,

The sum of the adjacent angles is 180°

The angle measures of the vertical angles are the same

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

When the value of ∠1 increases, the value of ∠2 automatically decreases

When the value of ∠1 increases, the value of ∠3 also increases

C. How does the sum of the measures of ∠1 and ∠2 change when one ski moves? Explain.

Answer:

From the given figure,

We can observe that ∠1 and ∠2 lies on the same side of the ski and they are known as “Adjacent angles” (or) “Supplementary angles”

Now,

We know that,

The sum of the angle measures of adjacent angles is 180°

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the sum of the measures of ∠1 and ∠2 always remains constant even when one ski moves

**Focus on math practices**

Construct Arguments Why does the sum of all four angle measures stay the same when one of the skis moves?

Answer:

From the given figure,

We can observe that the intersecting skies form 4 angles

Now,

We know that,

The sum of the adjacent angles’ angle measures is 180°

The angle measures of the vertical angles are the same

So,

∠1 + ∠2 = 180° and ∠3 + ∠4 = 180°

∠1 = ∠3 and ∠2 = ∠4

So,

∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠4 = 360°

So,

Even when we change one angle measure, the remaining angle measures will adjust their angle measures accordingly so that the sum of all the four angles remain the same i.e, 360°

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the sum of all four angle measures stay the same even when one of the skis moves

**Essential Question**

How are angles formed by intersecting lines related?

Answer:

When two lines intersect, the angles that are opposite each other are vertical angles. Recall that a linear pair is a pair of adjacent angles whose non-common sides are opposite rays. So, when two lines intersect, the angles that are on the same side of a line form a linear pair.

3x° = 120°

x° = \(\frac{120°}{3}\)

x° = 40°

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

Since the vertical angles are congruent, the equation (3x – 6)° = 114° can be used to find the value of x

Hence,

The value of x is: 40°

Convince Me! Why can you use an equation when solving for x in the diagram?

0.4x° – 76° = 90°

0.4x°= 90° + 76°

0.4x° = 166°

4x° = 1,660°

The base of the new figure = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × Circumference of the circle

B. How is the height of the new shape related to the radius of the circle?

Answer:

The given figure is:

Now,

From the given figure,

We can observe that the height of the new figure is equal to the radius of the circle

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

The height of the new figure = Radius of the circle

C. Since this new shape was made from a circle, use the information from the diagram and the formula for the area of the parallelogram, A= bh, to discover the formula for the area of a circle.

Answer:

It is given that

The area of the parallelogram (A) = bh

Where,

b is the Base of the parallelogram

h is the height of the parallelogram

But,

It is given that

The parallelogram is made from a circle

Now,

From part (a) and (b),

A = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × The circumference of a circle × Radius of a circle

A = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 2πr × r

A = πr × r

A = πr²

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that teh area of the circle that is derived fro the area of the parallelogram is: πr²

**Focus on math practices**

Look for Relationships The formula A = bh can be used to find a good estimate for the area of the cut-out diagram. What would happen to this estimate if the circle was cut into 100 sections? 1,000 sections?

Answer:

The given figure is:

Now,

From the given figure,

We can observe that

The 8 parts of the circle made 4 parallelograms

So,

The relationship between the circles and parallelograms is:

The number of parallelograms = \(\frac{The number of parts of the circle}{2}\)

So,

For 100 pieces of the circle,

The number of parallelograms = \(\frac{100}{2}\)

= 50

For 1,000 pieces of the circle,

The number of parallelograms = \(\frac{1,000}{2}\)

= 500

Hence,

For 100 pieces of the circle,

The area of the parallelogram (A) = Base × Height [Since base = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × Circumference]

= 50r units²

For 1,000 pieces of the circle,

The area of the parallelogram (A) = Base × Height

= 500r units²

The circumference of a hubcap of a tire is 81.58 centimeters. Find the area, in square centimeters, of this hubcap. Use 3.14 as an approximation for π. Round your answer to the nearest whole centimeter.

Answer:

It is given that

The circumference of a hubcap of a tire is 81.58 centimeters.

Now,

We know that,

The circumference of a circle (C) = 2πr

So,

81.58 = 2 × 3.14 × r

r = \(\frac{81.58}{6.28}\)

r = 12.99 cm

Now,

The area of a circle (A) = πr²

So,

A = 3.14 × (12.99)²

= 529.8 cm²

≈ 530 cm²

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the area of the circular hubcap is about 530 cm²

**Solve & Discuss It!**

How could Mrs. Mendoza divide the ream of paper equally between two art classes? She has a paper cutter to slice the paper if needed. What will the dimensions for each sheet of paper be once she has divided the ream? How many sheets will each class receive?

I can… determine what the cross-section looks like when a 3D figure is sliced.

Answer:

It is given that

Mrs. Mendoza has a paper cutter to slice the paper.

Now,

The given figure is:

Now,

From the given figure,

We can observe that,

A ream consists of 500 sheets

We can also observe that

The dimensions of the ream are:

Length of the ream: 8\(\frac{1}{2}\) inches

Width of the ream: 11 inches

Now,

From the given figure,

We can observe that

The shape of the ream is: Rectangle

Now,

We know that,

Even we cut a ream of paper, each sheet of paper has the same dimensions as a ream of paper

So,

The dimensions of each sheet of paper after Mrs. Mendoza divided the ream into 2 equal parts are:

Length: 8\(\frac{1}{2}\) inches

Width: 11 inches

Now,

The number of sheets of paper each class will get after dividing the ream = \(\frac{500}{2}\)

= 250 sheets

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

The number of sheets each class will receive is: 250

The dimensions of each sheet of paper once Mrs. Mendoza divided the ream is:

Length: 8\(\frac{1}{2}\) inches

Width: 11 inches

Focus on math practices

Use Structure How would the number of sheets of paper each class receives change if Mrs. Mendoza started with 300 sheets?

Answer:

It is given that

Mrs. Mendoza has 500 sheets of paper and she divided the sheets equally between the two classes

Now,

If Mrs. Mendoza started with 300 sheets of paper, then

The number of sheets divided by Mrs. Mendoza equally between the two classes = \(\frac{300}{2}\)

= 150

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the number of sheets each class receives when Mrs. Mendoza started with 300 sheets is: 150

### Lesson 8.8 Solve Problems Involving Surface Area

**Solve & Discuss It!**

Alaya will paint the outside of a box in three different colors. Decide how she could paint the box. What is the total area that each color will cover?

I can… find the area and surface area of 2-dimensional composite shapes and 3-dimensional prisms.

Answer:

It is given that

Alaya will paint the outside of a box in three different colors

Now,

The given figure is:

Now,

From the given figure,

We can observe that the given figure is a “Cuboid” which has 6 faces

Now,

The different ways that Alaya can paint are:

a. She can paint all the faces of the box with the same color

b. She can paint the faces of the box with alternative colors i.e., 1 face is colored with 1 color, 2nd face is colored with 1 color, etc.

Now,

We know that,

The total surface area of a cuboid (A) = 2 (lw + wh + lh)

Where,

‘l’ is the length of the cuboid

‘w’ is the width of the cuboid

‘h’ is the height of the cuboid

Now,

From the given figure,

The length of the cuboid (l) is 32 in.

The width of the cuboid (w) is 16 in.

The height of the cuboid (h) is 14 in.

So,

A = 2 (32 × 16 + 16 × 14 + 32 × 14)

= 2 (512 + 224 + 448)

= 2,368 in.²

So,

The total surface area that each color will cover = \(\frac{2,368}{6}\)

= 394.66 in.²

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

The different ways that Alaya can paint are:

a. She can paint all the faces of the box with the same color

b. She can paint the faces of the box with alternative colors i.e., 1 face is colored with 1 color, 2nd face is colored with 1 color, etc.

Answer:

It is given that

The below diagram shows the area of a room to be carpeted.

Now,

The given figure is:

Now,

From the given figure,

We can observe that

The total area of a room that is carpeted = The area of a rectangle + The area of a triangle

Now,

From the given figure,

The dimensions of the rectangle are:

Length: 6 feet

Width: 5 feet

The dimensions of the triangle are:

Height: 6 feet

Base: 4 feet

Now,

We know that,

The area of a rectangle = Length × Width

= 6 × 5

= 30 feet²

Now,

We know that,

The area of a triangle = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × Base × height

= \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 6 × 4

= 12 feet²

So,

The area of the new carpet = 30 + 12

= 42 feet²

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that the area of the new carpet is: 42 feet²

Convince Me! How does knowing the area of familiar shapes help find the total area of a composite shape?

Hiromi is painting the front and back of a barn. Each can of paint covers 32 square feet. How many cans of paint does Hiromi need to cover the entire front and back of the barn?

Answer:

It is given that

Hiromi is painting the front and back of a barn. Each can of paint covers 32 square feet.

Now,

The given figure is:

Now,

From the given figure,

We can observe that

The total area of the barn (A) = The area of the front + The area of the back

= 2 (The area of the front) (or) 2 (The area of the back)

Now,

The front side of the barn is made up of a rectangle and a triangle

Now,

The area of the front side of the barn = The area of the rectangle + The area of the triangle

= Length × Width + \(\frac{1}{2}\) × Base × Height

= 11 × 12 + \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 12 × (15 – 11)

= 132 + 24

= 156 ft²

So,

The total area of the barn (A) = 2 × 156

= 312 ft²

Now,

The number of cans of paint does Hiromi need to cover the entire front and back of the barn = \(\frac{The total area of the barn}{The number of square feet each can covers}\)

= \(\frac{312}{32}\)

= 9.75

≅ 10 cans of paint

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that Hiromi needs to cover 10 cans of paint to cover the entire front and back of the barn

**Lesson 8.1 Solve Problems involving Scale Drawings**

**Quick Review**

In a scale drawing, the scale is a ratio that relates each drawing length to the actual length it represents. To find unknown lengths, you can use the scale to write a proportion.

Example

A blueprint of a room is drawn to a scale of 2 inches = 7 feet. The actual length of one wall is 56 feet. What is the length of this wall on the blueprint?

Answer:

Use the scale to write a proportion.

\(\frac{2 \text { in. }}{7 \mathrm{ft}}=\frac{x \text { in. }}{56 \mathrm{ft}}\)

56 feet = 7 feet x 8, so multiply 2 inches by 8

x = 2 inches x 8 = 16 inches

The length in the blueprint is 16 inches.

**Practice**

Use the scale drawing to answer the questions.

Question 1.

What is the actual area of the meeting room in square yards?

Answer:

The given figure is:

Now,

From the given figure,

We can observe that

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

So,

The actual length of the meeting room = (Scale factor) × (The length of the scale drawing)

= 3 × 4

= 12 yd

So,

The actual width of the meeting room = (Scale factor) × (The width of the scale drawing)

= 3 × 1.5

= 4.5 yd

So,

The actual area of the meeting room = (The actual length of the meeting room) × (The actual width of the meeting room)

= 12 × 4.5

= 54.0

= 54 yd²

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

The actual area of the meeting room is: 54 yd²

Question 2.

John decides to make a new scale drawing of the meeting room. He wants the length of the room in the new drawing to be 8 inches

Now,

From Question 1,

The actual length of the meeting room = (Scale factor) × (The length of the scale drawing)

= 3 × 4

= 12 yd

So,

\(\frac{1}{8}\) = \(\frac{12}{x}\)

x = 96

So,

The new scale for the drawing is:

8 inches = 96 yd

Divide by 8 on both sides

1 inch = 12 yd

Hence, from the above,

We can conclude that

The new scale for the drawing is:

1 inch = 12 yd
