What is the scale of 1 100?

1000 mm = 1 m. 10 cm = 0.1 m. Ratio scales. If the scale of the plan is 1 : 100, this means the real measurements are 100 times longer than they are on the plan. So 1 cm on the plan represents a real length of 100 cm (1 metre)

Thereof, what is 1 to 20 scale?

An engineer's scale is a tool for measuring distances and transferring measurements at a fixed ratio of length. Referred to as 1:10, 1:20, 1:30,1:40, 1:50 or 1:60 scale. Typically in civil engineering applications, 1:10 (1″=10′) is used exclusively for detail drawings. 1:20 and 1:40 scales are used for working plans.
