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

**Karly**, Thursday, February 10, 2011 at 5:29pm120 km = 463 km

------------.... ---------

1cm(map) map distance (cm)

Cross-multiply to get algebra equation.

120x =463

x = 463/120 = 3.858333333 (round off to 3.9 since 3.858 is closer to 3 9/10 than

3 8/10 - always round up from 5 or greater 3.8(58)

x = 3.9 cm

so ya I think that should be the right answer ;) =) I had trouble with that one too. I'm from Insight so I know. I hope you get it right ;) =)
