Q:
# the map shown is scale of 1:50 000 1) measure and state in centimeters the distance on the map from L to M2) Calculate the actual distance in kilometers from L to M3) The actual distance two points is 4.5 km calculate the number of centimeters that should be used to represent the distance one the map

Accepted Solution

A:

see the attached figure to better understand the problem

Part 1)

using a graph tool

the distance on the map from M to L along a straight line is 5.8 cms

part 2) Calculate the actual distance in kilometers from L to M

we know that

the scale is 1:50 000

that means

1 cm on the map is in the actual-----> 50000 cm-----> 500 m-----> 0.5 km

so

if 1 cm on the map is--------> 0.5 km in the actual

5.8 cm on the map is-------> X km

x=5.8*0.5-----> x=2.9 km

the answer Part 2) is

the actual distance in kilometers from L to M is 2.9 km

Part 3) The actual distance two points is 4.5 km calculate the number of centimeters that should be used to represent the distance one the map

if 1 cm on the map is--------> 0.5 km in the actual

X cm---------------------------> 4.5 km

x=4.5/0.5-----> x=9 cm

the answer Part 3) is 9 cm

Part 1)

using a graph tool

the distance on the map from M to L along a straight line is 5.8 cms

part 2) Calculate the actual distance in kilometers from L to M

we know that

the scale is 1:50 000

that means

1 cm on the map is in the actual-----> 50000 cm-----> 500 m-----> 0.5 km

so

if 1 cm on the map is--------> 0.5 km in the actual

5.8 cm on the map is-------> X km

x=5.8*0.5-----> x=2.9 km

the answer Part 2) is

the actual distance in kilometers from L to M is 2.9 km

Part 3) The actual distance two points is 4.5 km calculate the number of centimeters that should be used to represent the distance one the map

if 1 cm on the map is--------> 0.5 km in the actual

X cm---------------------------> 4.5 km

x=4.5/0.5-----> x=9 cm

the answer Part 3) is 9 cm
