## What is 1.5 as a scale factor?

Architectural Scales

DRAWING SCALE | SCALE FACTOR | DECIMAL SCALE |
---|---|---|

3/4″ = 1′-0″ | 16 | .75″ = 1′-0″ |

1″ = 1′-0″ | 12 | 1″ = 1′-0″ |

1 1/2″ = 1′-0″ | 8 | 1.5″ = 1′-0″ |

3″ = 1′-0″ | 4 | 3″ = 1′-0″ |

## How do I calculate scale factor?

The basic formula that is used for calculating the scale factor is, Scale factor = Dimension of the new shape ÷ Dimension of the original shape. In case, if the original figure is scaled up, the formula is written as, Scale factor = Larger figure dimensions ÷ Smaller figure dimensions.

**What is 0.012 as a percentage?**

Decimal 0.012 in Percent is 1.2%.

### What is a scale factor of 1 : 2?

Suppose you are told that the smaller square has a side length of 2 inches and the scale factor from the smaller to the larger is 1 : 2. Remember, this means that 1 inch on the smaller square is 2 inches on the larger square. If we multiply by the scale factor, 1/2, we will get a smaller number.

### What is 0.12 as a percentage?

To convert 0.12 to percent multiply 0.12 by 100. The result is 12 percent, or, using the percent sign, 12 %. Put simply, to change 0.12 to % move the ″.″ two places to the right.

**What is 1.27 as a percent?**

1.27 as a percentage of certain number x can be calculated by dividing 1.27 by x, and multiplying the result by 100. For example, 1.27 as a percentage of 10 = (1.27 / 10) x 100% = 12.7%.

#### What is scale factor and percent change?

Scale factor is a multiplier (a factor!) and percent change compares how much something changes when compared to the original. Sounds simple, but people get confused by this all the time.

#### How do you find the scale factor of an object?

For example, if you would like to apply a scale factor of 1:6 and the length of the item is 5 cm, you simply multiple 5 × 6 = 30 cm to get the new dimension. To scale an object to a smaller size, you simply divide each dimension by the required scale factor.

**What is a scale factor calculator used for?**

Basically, the scale factor is used to increase or decrease the size of any geometrical figure. Our best scale factor calculator allows you to estimate the scale factor most efficiently by including minimal errors. If you are scaling up, then your fraction must be containing a numerator of 1.

## How to set the scale ratio?

Set the scale ratio according your need, eg 1:10, 1:30, 35:1. Select the unit of real length and scale length. Using different units will automatically convert the result. Enter the number of real length, the scale length will be calculated automatically. Enter the number of scale length, the real length will be calculated automatically.
