When temperature increases, length of obj observed by scale is less than correct length.
hence true value at measured temperature 20 degrees Celsius is
Lt= true value of length. Lm= length measured at 20 degrees celsius
a= linear coefficient of exp of brass= 18x10^-6
Lt= Lm+ (Lm x a x change in temperature)
   =20 + (20 x 18 x 10^-6 x 20)
   = 20 + (72 x 10^-4)
   =20.0072cm
