Hello, magentarita!
I often see the words not drawn to scale.
What exactly does that mean?
Suppose they gave us $\displaystyle \Delta ABC$ with: .$\displaystyle AB = 10,\;BC = 12,\;AC = 5$
And suppose they supplied this diagram: Code:
A
*
* *
10 * * 5
* *
* *
* *
B * * * * * * * C
12
It is only a rough sketch . . . It is not "drawn to scale."
$\displaystyle AB = 10$ does not look like it is twice $\displaystyle AC = 5$, does it?
It gives an idea of what the triangle looks like.
. . $\displaystyle AC$ is the shortest side and $\displaystyle BC$ is the longest side.
But I wouldn't guess the size of the angles from that diagram.
. . It looks like $\displaystyle \angle A$ is acute, but actually it's about 101°.
