# The distance between two places X and Y is 600 km . If it is represented in a map by 40 cm, what is the scale of this map for 1 cm?

**Given :**

Distance between X and Y = 600 km

It is represented in 40 cm map.

1 cm =?

**To do:**

We have to find the scale of the map.

**Solution :**

600 km is represented in 40 cm map, which means 600 is divided into 40 divisions.

Let 1 cm is represented by x km.

Therefore,

$600:40=x:1$

$\frac{600}{40}=\frac{x}{1}$

$x=15\times1$

$x=15$

**The scale of the map for 1 cm is 15 km.**
