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 $$1:300000$$
