Please could anyone help me on this sum?

A map of Holland is drawn to a scale of 1:400,000.

What real distance is represented by 1 cm on the map ?


The answer is : 4 km.

Thank you.

Dear Tulip,

1cm on the map = 400,000 cm
4,00,000cm= 4km.

Hope this helps

For a child I would cut this up more

1 cm represents 400,000 cm

100 cm = 1 m

So

1 cm represents 4000 m

1000 m = 1 km

So
1 cm represents 4 km
