Q: What distance is 20 cm on a map with a scale of 4cm to 12 km?

Write your answer...

Map uses scale of 3cm/10km. If your distance is 12 cm, then 12cm/(3cm/10km) gives you 40 km.

Yes.

312 Km

12

The "scale" of a map is a proportionality constant between distances on the map and corresponding distances on the area the map represents. Call the unknown number of inches n. Then 1/2 = n/12, or n = 6.

On that scale... 6 inches !

1,000.

Square side 3cm. Rectangle 2cm x 4cm. Equilateral triangle side 4cm.

It would represent 6 inches!

6 inches

The area is 12 cm2.

The driving distance from Houston to Jacksonville FL is 871 miles per Map Quest. The driving time to Jacksonville per Map Quest is 12 hours and 52 minutes.

The driving distance from Tunica MS to Albany GA is 489 miles per Map Quest. The driving time per Map Quest is 8 hours and 12 minutes.

Umm...6.

A=1/2(b)(h). So A=1/2(6cm)(4cm). A=12cm^2, or 12 squared centimeters.

The driving distance is 792 miles per Map Quest. The driving time between New York and Chicago per Map Quest is 12 hours and 6 minutes.

according to map quest it's 2hrs and 12 min

Area = 12*4 = 48 square cm

For each map, the distance an inch may represent a different distance in the real world. Every map has a scale, that is, one unit of measurement on the map equals another unit of distance on the ground. A map of Rhode Island that occupies one page in an atlas and a map of Texas on another page will have very different scales. Some maps in the same edition (military, or U.S. Geological Survey maps, for instance, have standard scales. One unit on the map represents 25,000 or 50,000 units on the ground. In this case, just measure the distance you want, and multiply by the second number in the ratio. 1:25,000. Twenty-five thousand inches is not a meaningful number to most people, so you'll have to convert it to feet (divide by 12) then to miles (divide by 5,280).Any good map has a "legend". The legend includes things like the name of the place the map represents, which direction on the map is north (it's not always straight up), what roads look like on the map, where churches and schools are, and similar data. One of these is the map or "representative scale".The scale shows how far, on the map, one measures to represent a given distance in reality. Many maps use multiples of five mile or kilometer distances (that is, 5, 10, 15, etc.) in the scale. Others use one unit or ten units. A scale might look like this:|__|__|__|__|__|0...5..10..15..20..25 milesTo determine the distance between two points, first, you'll need to answer the question: "Do I want a straight-line distance or a route (road or path) distance?"For a straight-line distance ("as the crow flies"), measure the space between the two points using knots on piece of string or marks on the edge of a piece of paper. Then, using the scale on the map, see how many scale units fall between the two marks or knots.Move the piece of paper to the scale. Let's say your marks are this far apart, with the scale above it (I've put exclamation marks to represent points where I've moved the scale to the right four times so we can see how many 25-mile units the distance between the two marks are):|__|__|__|__|__!__|__|__|__|__!__|__|__|__|__!__|__|__|__|__|^....................................................................................^At this scale, the distance is roughly (more than 80, but less than 85) 83 miles.For a route distance, use a piece of paper with a mark lined up with the first of your two points. Place the edge of the paper as closely as possible along either the left or right side of the symbol for the road or path you're going to measure. When the road turns, make a new mark, and pivot the paper to the next direction with this new mark at the point on the "road" where it turns.Continue to mark the paper every time you have to pivot it to go in a new direction. It is important to stay on the same "side" of the "road" because meandering back and forth on the "road" will add distance to your measurements, and this distance can be significant.When you reach the second point (the end of the journey), you'll have several marks on your paper, but you care only about the first one and the last one. What you've done is create a "straight-line equivalent" along the edge of your piece of paper that's the scale distance between your two points. Follow the same method above to convert from "map distance" to the actual length you'd travel on the ground.It will take a bit of practice to become proficient with measuring distances on a map. Do it several times before it's important so you can do it well.
