Question #115746

Calculate the real world distance in meters for the map distances and scales given below

Distance on the map 4cm scale 1:10 000

Distance on the map 6mm scale 1:50 000

Distance on the map 4cm scale 1:10 000

Distance on the map 6mm scale 1:50 000

Expert's answer

The first map: 1 cm contains 10 000 cm, therefore, 4 cm is 40 000 cm, or 400 m.

The second map: 1 cm contains 50 000 cm, therefore, 4 cm is 200 000 cm, or 2 km.
