    Answer:

    Scale of the Map = 1 cm to 82 Km

    Step-by-step explanation:

    25cm is equivalent to 2050Km

    Hence 1cm will be equivalent to 2050/25 = 82Km

    Answer:

    1 cm : 82km

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Now

    1km = 1000 X 100 cm

    Therefore

    2050km = 2050 X 1000 X 100cm

    2050km = 205,000,000 cm

    25cm rep 205,000,000 cm

    1cm rep 205,000,000/25 cm

    1cm rep 8,200,000cm

    8,200,000= 8,200,000รท(100,000)km

    =82km

    Therefore: 1cm represents 82km

    An alternate approach is to divide directly

    25cm rep 2050 km

    1cm represents 2050/25km

    1cm: 82km

    The scale is 1 cm : 82km
