# Julie was given a map of New Hampshire to calculate some distances. The scale is 1 inch = 50 miles. How far is Hanover (bottom left corner of the triangle) from Littleton (top middle corner of the triangle)? A) 312.5 miles B) 425 miles C) 450 miles D) 523.5 miles

Question

Answer:

We know that the scale is 1 inch = 50 miles, so we can establish the conversion factor [tex] \frac{50miles}{1in} [/tex].We also know that the distance between Hanover and Littleton is 8.5in according to the map.

Now the only thing we'll need to do to find the actual distance is multiplying the distance of the map by our conversion factor:

[tex](8.5in)( \frac{50miles}{1in} )=425miles[/tex]

We can conclude that the distance between Hanover and Littleton is 425 miles.
