a scale distance of 3.5 cm on a certain maps represents an actual 17.5 km.what actual area does 7 square centimetres on the dame map represents?

  • math -

    just use a proportion to first find the length.

    3.5cm/17.5km = 7cm/x km
    3.5x = 7(17.5)
    x = 35

    so 7 cm represents 35 km
    the area of that would be 35^2 = 1225 km^2
