Conversion of lengths at a given scale in both directions (Example for this math problem) Conversion of lengths at a given scale in both directions (Example for this math problem) Conversion of lengths at a given scale in both directions (Example for this math problem)


Lengths are to be converted at a given scale.

The scale is selectable in two ranges. Furthermore, it must be specified in which direction (model->reality or, reality->model) the conversion is to be made. Scales are used on maps to measure reality distances. This worksheet is used to convert values of a scaled length to reality and vice versa.

Practicing these worksheets will buildup the following skills.

These worksheets will boost critical thinking and problem-solving skills in the context of real-life problems. In each question, a configurable number of length scales with values are given. Conversion is to be done for each scale.

The number of problems, scaling factor, direction of conversion, and notation of length specification can be chosen. Each problem can be generated with problems starting from 1 problem and a maximum of 10 problems per worksheet. The scaling factor is up to 500000. Conversion can be done in both ways, model to reality and reality to model. Notation of length can also vary in multiple unit steps, in decimal notation, and whole numbers only.

The answer key will provide the converted solution with units.
