Dimensions 81607

On a 1:150000 scale map, what will be the dimensions of a strip of the forest whose actual length is 6 km and actual width is 900 meters?

Correct answer:

x =  4 cm
y =  0.6 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

a=6 km cm=6 1000 100  cm=600000 cm b=900 m cm=900 100  cm=90000 cm M=150000  x=a/M=600000/150000=4 cm
y=b/M=90000/150000=0.6 cm
