Two monuments

The distance between two historical monuments on a map with a scale of 1: 500000 is 48 mm. Find the actual distance between these monuments in km.

Correct result:

x =  24 km

Solution:

M=500000 a=48 mm m=48/1000  m=0.048 m b=a km=a/1000  km=0.048/1000  km=5.0105 km  x=M b=500000 4.8105=24 km
