A map of Ireland is drawn to the scale of 1 : 4000000

How many centimetres of the map would show 80 KM.

Please Show your findings, otherwise please do not answer.

Thank you.

First we want to be working in the same units so we convert 80KM into centimeters which is 8,000,000CM.

Since we are working with a map which scales everything to 1/4,000,000 of it's size we can take 8,000,000CM X 1/4,000,000 = 2cm which is the answer!
