The route of the parade is traced below.
2. Look at the map carefully and find out:
a) Which of these is the longest road?
i. B S Zafar Marg ii. Subhash Marg iii. Tilak Marg
Subhash Marg is the longest road among them.
b) If Rubia is coming from Jama Masjid to join the parade, guess about how far she have to walk.
We know that the route of the parade through Subhash Marg and the Jama Masjid is 1 cm away from the Subhash Marg on the map.
In given map the scale is 2 cm = 1 km so, 1 cm = 0.5 km
We know that, 1 km = 1000 m so, 0.5 km = 500 m
Thus, Rubia will have to walk about 500 m to join the parade
c) The total route of the parade is about how long?
i. 3km ii.16km iii.25 km iv.8km
Total distance of parade in the map is 16 cm.

5. About how far is Lahori Gate from Diwan-e-Khaas?
The map distance of Lahori Gate from Diwan-e-Khaas is about 6 cm.
We know, 1 cm = 100 m
So, ground distance of Lahori Gate from Diwan-e-Khaas = 6 ×100 = 600 m
Make it bigger, make it smaller:
Here are some pictures drawn on a 1cm square grid. Try making the same pictures on a 2 cm grid and also on a ½ cm grid.
The side of the square was made two times bigger. Does its area also become two times bigger?
Suppose the original length of side of square is 1 cm. Now, area of square = side × side = 1 × 1 square cm = 1 square cm
When the side of square is made two times bigger, then the new length of the side of the square will be 2 cm Area of square = side × side = 2 × 2 square cm = 4 square cm
So, when the side of the square is made 2 times bigger, then its area becomes 4 times bigger than the original area.
