Homework Help: math

Posted by keisha on Saturday, November 24, 2007 at 11:24am.

A map of Australia has a scale of 1 cm to 120 km. If the distance between Melbourne and Canberra is 463 km, how far apart are they on the map, to the nearest tenth of a centimeter?

I got 3.9 cm. I made a proportion 1/120=x/463 and that's how I got 3.9. Is this right?
