### Draw a Plain Scale 1 cm = 1 m to Read Decimeters, to measure maximum distance of 6 m.

Construction Steps:-

**1)** Calculate R.F. = Dimension in Drawing / Actual Dimension

R.F. = 1 cm/ 1 m = 1/100

Length of scale = R.F. X max. distance

= 1/100 X 600 cm

= 6 cms

**2)** Draw a line 6 cm long and divide it in 6 equal parts. Each part will represent larger division unit.

**3)** Subdivide the first part which will represent second unit or fraction of first unit.

**4)** Place (0) at the end of first unit. Number the units on right side of Zero and subdivisions on left-hand side of Zero. Take height of scale 5 to 10 mm for getting a look of scale.

**5)** After construction of scale mention its RF and name of scale as shown.

**6)** Show the distance 4 m 6 dm on it as shown.

**Plain Scale Represents Two Units or a unit and it’s Sub-division.**
