The length of the highway is 500 miles. If 1 inch represents 100 miles, what is the length of the highway on the map?

If on a scale drawing 55 feet are represented by 20 inches, then a scale of 1/8 inch represents how many feet?

If 1 inch represents 55 miles on a map, then how many inches will represent 1800 miles

500/100 = 5

5 * 1 = 5 inches

I'll be glad to check your answers for the other two problems.
