sean is taking some friends on a picnic. they'll nee to follow the path to get there . A map of the path is based on a scale drawing of 1:40,000, in (cm). If the path is 15 (cm) on the map, how many kilometers is the actual path?

If

1:40,000 cm

then

Now for 15 cm we multiply 10,000 by 15 then

= 15 * 40,000 cm

= 6,00,000 cm

Now 

1 kilometer = 1,00,000 cm 

then

6,00,000 cm in kilometers is 

6,00,000 cm / 1,00,000 cm

then

The real distance is 6 kilometers.
