1. The length and the width of the rectangle are 10x and 5x, respectively

### What is scale drawing?

Scale drawing involves enlarging or reducing the side length of a shape to create another shape by a constant scale factor, where the scale factor does not equal one.

### How to determine the length and the width?

The length and the width of the scale drawing is:
Length = 10 cm
Width = 5 cm
Let the scale ratio be
Ratio = 1 : x
So, the length and the width of the swimming pool are:
Length = 10 * x
Length = 10x
Width = 5 * x
Width = 5x
Hence, the length and the width of the rectangle are 10x and 5x, respectively
