On a map, 90 miles is represented by 3 inches. A measure of 1/2 inch on the map would represent _____ miles.
Hi there! We know that 1/2 inch = to 0.5 So we gonna use 0.5 instead of 1/2 because it would be easier to do the calculation part. If 3 inch >>>>>>> 90 miles 0.5 inch >>>>>>> x ( x is the miles that we are looking for ) got it ? Cross multiply 3x = 90*0.5 3x = 45 Divide both sides by 3 3x/3 = 45/3 x = 15 miles Answer : A measure of 1/2 inch on the map would represent 15 miles. I hope this answer help! Have a great day ^^^!
