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.

5 inches will equal 10 miles if the scale is 1 inch equals 2 miles

You should probably finish your question.

1,000 miles

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.

On that scale... 6 inches !

It would be 360 miles.

On a map.

World

On the scale 1 inch:2 miles. 12 miles would be 6 inches

200 because it would have more miles in the inch than 100 miles.

Map scales are given in 1 of 3 ways. The type of scale in your question is called the simple verbal scale. A scale of 1in equals 1,500 miles would certainly not be used on a map of a city and only on an overview map of the world. To put it in perspective, the earth's circumference at the equator is 24, 902 miles so depicting the world on a scale of 1in equals 1,500 miles would give a map width of only 16.6013in (40.957cm).Or put it like this, on a map with a scale of 1in equals 1,500 miles, the USA would be roughly 1.333in wide and the Atlantic Ocean only 2.5in wide. A map drawn to a scale of 1in equals 1,500 miles would only be suitable for overviews to depict countries and oceans in relation to each other. It would be too small to show any real detail.Another type of scale is the fractional scale. If the scale is 1:1,500, this would equate roughly to a verbal scale of 1in equals1/4 mile, which would be a far more suitable scale for a city map.
