The 1 inch to 200 miles is the smaller 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.
The map that is 1 inche equals 100 miles
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.
1 Inch equals 200 miles
The smaller scale map is the 1 inch to 200 miles scale.
The map where 1 inch equals 100 miles
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?
5 inches will equal 10 miles if the scale is 1 inch equals 2 miles
2 1/2 times smaller scale, so 40% of the original scale.
On that scale... 6 inches !
To answer that question, I would need the context which details a scale. If one inch on a scale equals 14 miles, that scale remains the same. So two inches (which equals 1 times 2) would translate into 28 miles (because 14 times 2 is 28). The same would hold true for 400 miles. If one inch equals 400 miles, two inches equals 800 miles, and three inches equals 1200 miles.
Two inches is 1,000 miles and 34 inches is 17,000 miles.
On a map.
It is obvious and simple mathematics .200 is greater than 100 .Hence, 200 miles is greater than 100 miles .
12 miles divided by 2 miles equals 6 inches so it is 6 inches dah
On the scale 1 inch:2 miles. 12 miles would be 6 inches
