What are some things that use scales? Scales Similar figures have scales. Similar figures look exactly the same, the only difference is that one figure is bigger or smaller than the other. Similar Figures Scales with different units Many things need to be converted such as Degrees, Recipes, Heights, Lengths, Widths.... etc. Word Problem On a map, the scale is 1 cm = 8 miles. The actual distance between two cities is 256 miles. What is the distance between these cities on the map? Jacob made a drawing of his land using a scale 1 inch = 14 yards. The actual length of his land is 84 yards long. What is the length of Jacob’s land in the drawing? I can find the dimensions of figures when given a scale and identify the impact of a scale on actual length and area. Mrs. Barrett
