Scale of Measure

Scale of Measure

Ratio or relationship between the measure of the representation of an object and the real measure of the object.


The symbol generally used to compare a measure and its representation is “\(≙\)” which means “corresponds to.”


The relationship “1 cm \(≙\) 1 km” is written on many maps, meaning that a distance of 1 cm on the map corresponds to a real distance of 1 km in the real world.
