Two villages

On the map with a scale of 1:40000 are drawn two villages actually 16 km away. What is their distance on the map?

Result

x =  40 cm

Solution:

a=16 km=16 1000 m=16000 m M=40000 x1=a/M=16000/40000=25=0.4 m  x=x1cm=x1 100 cm=40 cm=40  cm a = 16 \ km = 16 \cdot \ 1000 \ m = 16000 \ m \ \\ M = 40000 \ \\ x_{ 1 } = a/M = 16000/40000 = \dfrac{ 2 }{ 5 } = 0.4 \ m \ \\ \ \\ x = x_{ 1 } \rightarrow cm = x_{ 1 } \cdot \ 100 \ cm = 40 \ cm = 40 \ \text{ cm }



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
