Lab Manual Figure 3–2 using the scale indicated. Mark
your answer in the blank provided by the line.
EXERCISE SETUP
No special setup is required for this exercise. Construc-
tion plans can be provided for additional student practice.
Student’s lines were the same length as those
shown on the key in Figure 5. As the scale
decreases (higher numbers such as 1 inch =
40feet, 1 inch = 50 feet) expect the level of
accuracy to diminish slightly. At such scales the
Locate construction plans of varying scales that students
can practice measuring. When measuring construction
plans, keep in mind that printing paper can shrink and
expand with humidity, so the labeled dimensions always
take precedence over the measured dimensions.
