Short Answer Type Questions

Question 1.
What do you mean by representative fraction?
Answer:
Scale of a map is also indicated by a fraction called the representative fraction (R.F.) in which numerator is 1 and represents the distance on the map and the denominator represents the distance on the ground. R.F. is independent of any particular unit of measurement. By it one can judge distance on a map even if he is not familiar with the linear measurements of that country.

For example, if the R.F. in a map is stated to be 1 : 1,00,000 this means that one unit on the map represents 1,00,000 of the same unit on the ground. If this unit is centimetre, then 1 cm. On the map represents 1,00,000 cm on the ground, i.e., 1 cm represents 1 kilometre.
