1m = 100cm. So, 200m = 200x100cm = 20,000cm. 1cm in the map representing 200m on the ground will be 1:20,000 in ratio.

### What is the ratio of volume to surface area of a cube with the dimesion 1cm x 1cm x 1cm?

It doesn't matter what the unit of measurement is, or what size the cube is. If the length of the side of the cube is 'S' units, then the volume is S3 and the surface area is 6S2. The ratio of volume to surface area is (S3/6S2) = S/6 units. For this one, the ratio is 1/6 cm.

### Why should ratio be written in the same unit?

Because the ratio would;t be correct. Look at this example. What is the ratio of 1cm to 1 metre? If you went by these measurements you would get 1:1 which means 1cm is the same as 1 metre., which is false. The correct answer means comparing 1cm with 100cm (or 1 metre) which is 1:100. So it's really important with ratios that the units are the same.

### What are the scales found on maps?

The scale represents the ratio of length in the map to length of the real world so for example 1:175,000 means 1cm on the map represents 175,000 cm or 1.7 km (~ 1 mile) in real life. 1:10,000 would represent a relatively small area where 1 cm would represent 10,000cm or 100m on the ground. Likewise, 1:1,000,000 would be a larger area where 1cm of map represents 1,000,000 cm or 10 km on the ground.
