Scale of the map

The distance between two cities is actually 30 km and the map is 6 cm. What is the scale of the map?

Result

M =  500000

Solution:

a=6 cm=6/100 m=0.06 m b=30 km=30 1000 m=30000 m  M=ba=300000.06=500000=500000=5.000000105  M1:500000a = 6 \ cm = 6 / 100 \ m = 0.06 \ m \ \\ b = 30 \ km = 30 \cdot \ 1000 \ m = 30000 \ m \ \\ \ \\ M = \dfrac{ b }{ a } = \dfrac{ 30000 }{ 0.06 } = 500000= 500000 = 5.000000\cdot 10^{ 5 } \ \\ \ \\ M 1:500000



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!
