The distance on a map is given. Find the actual distance, if the scale on the map is 1 in.=60 miles.
2 3/4 in.
Please help! Thank you in advance.

2 3/4 in = 2.75 inches
so just multiply that by 60 
2.75*60=165 miles
It would 165 miles.
ok, thank you. 
u can also do this, but u can do it the easier way, in ur opinion
2 inches=120 miles
3/4 mile= 45 miles
u find that out by dividing the original 60 miles by 4 and then multiplying that by 3
120+45=165 miles
