Example On a map of scale 1 : 10000, a road is 3 cm long. How long is the actual road? Answer The road is 3 x cm = cm long = 300 m A field is 1.5 km long. How long would the field be on a a map of scale 1 : 50000? Answer 1.5 km = 1.5 x 1000 m = 3 cm = 1500 m = 1500 x 100 cm The field is 3 cm long on the map = cm Saturday, 16 September 2006 ©RSH

Exercise On a map of scale 1 : , the distance between Tower Bridge and Hammersmith Bridge is 12.3 cm. What is the actual distance in km ? 12.3 x = cm = m = 12.3 km If the scale of a map is 1 : , what will be the length on this map of a road which is 5 km long ? 5 km = 5 x 1000 x 100 = cm = 50 cm Saturday, 16 September 2006 ©RSH
