For example, if your real measurement is 5m and your model is 20cm, divide 5/20 =1/4 and that means the ratio would be 1:4.The scale of drawings is described as a ratio using the notation: A distance at full size : The distance at the **scale** used that would be the same length. For example: A full size **drawing** would be 1:1 (or sometimes 1/1 or ‘one to one’). A half size drawing would be 1:2.
