Answer: Length = 10cm

Width = 6cm

Step-by-step explanation:

First and foremost, we should note that

1 meter = 100 cm.

Therefore,

Length = 5m = 500 cm

Breadth = 3m = 300 cm.

Since Elena wants to make a scale drawing of 1 to 50, then

Length = 500 cm / 50 = 10 cm

Breadth = 300 cm / 50 = 6 cm.

Therefore, the length of the scale drawing will be 10 cm and the width of the scale drawing will be 6cm.
