I have a same question as someone else but a little different. Based on a scale 1 inch equals 15 miles. Washington to Franklin is 1 1/2 inches, Franklin to Lincoln is 1 inch How much further from Franklin is Washington than is Lincoln I to got 7 1/2 inches? But I was also told I was wrong? Can anyone help me figure this out? Thank You
