The scale on a map is 1cm : 10km . If and the actual distance between two lakes is 500 km, find the distance between the lakes as shown on a map.


We are asked about the distance on the map, and 1 cm represents 10 km.
Now, 500 km / 10 km = 50. So, 50 cm of distance will be on the map between the lakes.
