On a county map, 2 towns are 80 km apart. If the scale on the map is 1 cm = 5 km, how far apart are the towns on the map?
Answer - ________________ cm

1 cm = 5 cm
it's like a pattern ... so you multiply 80 times 5 which = 400
so the answer is 400......???????

    80 km divided by 5 is 16 cm.
    Therefore, they are 16cm apart on the map.
