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
