if the scale of a map is 1/4inches = 1 miles. the distance between two cities on the map is 3 1/4inches. what is the acutal distance ,in miles,between the two cities.

If ¼" = 1 mile, then you need to ask yourself this question: How many ¼inches there are in 1 inch?
4, right?
Now multiply and then add.
What do you get? 
Or you could set up a proportion. .25/1=x/3.25
