The 1 inch to 200 miles is the smaller scale.
200 miles has a smaller scale than 100 miles on an inch
1 Inch equals 200 miles
The smaller scale map is the 1 inch to 200 miles scale.
The smaller scale map is the 1 inch to 200 miles. The smaller the ratio (1:100, 1:200 etc) the larger the scale, and the more detail is in the map.
1 inch equals 100 miles would be the smaller scale, as 1 inch on the map would be a plot of 100 miles of terrain, as opposed to 200 miles of terrain.
The smaller the distance represented by 1 inch on a map's scale, the larger the scale [ ratio of a map distance to the actual real distance ]. So, the 1 Inch = 100 miles is TWICE the scale of the other in your case.
200 because it would have more miles in the inch than 100 miles.
Remember it this way: If you had two model submarines of the same boat, one was 1:50 scale and one was 1:200 scale, which model would be larger?
This question is wrong .Neither 1 inch is equal to 100 miles nor 200 miles .the relation between inch and miles is as follows . 1 inch =1.578 X 10 -5.
