    a. 24000*3"=24000*1/4 ft= 8000 ft
    b. 24000*5cm=24000*.05m=1200m

    Ok, can you show me the formula to use? But I'm thinking 1600k

  • Social Studies (MAPS) -

    A. 1" on the map = 24,000" on the ground; 3" on the map = 72,000" on the ground. 72,000" / 12" = 6,000 ft.

    *A in the orginal answer posted by bobpursley is incorrect; 24,000 divided by 1/4 (.25) is not 8,000, it is 6,000.
