    let's stick with ratios

    4.5 km = 450000 cm
    let x be the number of cm on the map
    1/50000 = x/450000
    x = 9 cm

    The answer to this question is simple. Use ratios. It's more easier.

    4.5 km = 450000 cm
    let x be the number of cm on the map
    1/50000 = x/450000
    x = 9 cm
