A scale on a map shows that 2 inches = 25 miles.

Part AHow many inches on the map represent 60 miles?

Enter your answer in the box.

Part BHow many miles are represented by $\frac{1}{4}$ inch on the map?

So we set up a proportion. inches/miles=inches/miles

Part a

2/25=x/60

Cross multiply: 120=25x

divide by 25: x=120/25=4.8

part b

2/25=14/x

Cross multiply: 2x=350

Divide by 2: x=175
