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. Wiki User

### If you were designing a map of your own city would you let 1 inch equal one fourth mile 40 miles or 400 miles why?

Even the very largest of cities would not measure 40 miles from one side to the other. Therefore a scale of 1 inch to 40 miles would compress the city map into an area the size of a postage stamp. A scale of 1 inch to 400 miles would make it extremely tiny. A fairly large city could be 15 miles from one side to the other. With a scale of 1 inch to 2 miles the map may just fit on an A4 sheet of paper. 1 inch to 1 mile would fit A3. 1 inch to 1/4 mile would require 16 sheets of A3 which would be unwieldy. Depending on the size of the city and size of the paper on which you wish to print the map it looks as though a scale of 1 inch to 3/4 mile or 1inch to 1 mile would be preferable.
