Question

# On a map, a distance of 5 cm represents an actual distance of 15 km. Write the ratio of the scale of the map.

Solution

## First we need to convert $$15$$ km in cm to form the ratio.$$1\ km=100000\ cm$$$$\therefore 15\ km=15\times100000=1500000\ cm$$The ratio will became $$5:1500000$$$$=\dfrac{5}{1500000}$$$$=\dfrac{1}{300000}$$ by reducing.Ratio is $$1:300000$$Maths
