13.5

Step-by-step explanation:

Given: Patrick’s drawing uses a scale of 1 inch = 10 meters. Squidward made another scale drawing of the hotel with a scale of 2 cm = 40 meters.

To find: How tall is the hotel on Squidward’s drawing?

Formula: Height of the building = y × tan x + measurer’s height

Solution: The height of the building is calculated by using the formula. y = distance of the measurer from the building. x = the angle measured from the clinometer.

10 m building in Patrick’s drawing would be of  0.5 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

Scale of Patrick’s drawing is

1 inch = 10 meters

or 2.54 cm = 10 meters

1 cm = 3.94 m

In case of  Squidward the scale is 2 cm = 40 meters or

1 cm = 20 meters

So a 10 m building in Patrick’s drawing would be of

0.5 cm
