What is a Scale Drawing?
Scale drawings are an easy and plausible way to represent large things, such as roads and buildings, on paper. This tutorial explains what a scale drawing is and uses the example of a house to demonstrate how a scale drawing works. It does not explain how to solve the final proportion; however, that is not the objective of the video.
