    Thanks Ms.Sue,
    Here was the question that I am trying to figure out.
    -Which of the following scales would most likely be used for the maps of the features listed.
    1:12,500,00 - 1:1,000,000 - 1:10,000
    for state (Oregon), city (Portland), and world map.
    It shows no examples in my book.
    thanks

    Check out the graphics on this webpage. You should notice that the smaller the second number, the more detail on the map. (A 1:10,000 map would have more detail than a 1:100,000 map.)

    So what do you want more detail for? A city? A state? The world?
