Hi,
Here is the answer:
Nurses, architects and map makers use proportions at work. Nurses use proportions to find out the dose of medicine to be given to a patient. Medicine is given in an amount proportional to a patient's body weight.
A scale drawing is an enlarged or reduced drawing of an object that is similar to an actual object. Maps and floor plans are smaller than the actual size. Architects use proportions in making floor plans and map makers use proportions to make maps.
I hope it will help.
Thanks
