  1. 1 m = 100 cm

    1 km = 1000 m = 100 000 cm

    1:250 000 mean that 1 cm on the map represents an actual distance of 250 000 cm = 2.5 km

    1:250 000 = 2.5 km / cm

    80 km / 2.5 km / cm = 32 cm

    OR

    80 km = 8 000 000 cm

    8 000 000 cm ∙ 1 / 250 000 = 8 000 000 cm / 250 000 = 32 cm
