A map has a scale 6.5 in=32 miles.  How far apart are two cities that are 97.5  inches apart on the map?

 

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline && 97.5\ in. \times \frac{32\ \text{miles} }{6.5\ in.} \\ &=& 97.5 \times \frac{32 }{6.5 } \ \text{miles} \\ &=& 480 \ \text{miles} \\ \hline \end{array} \)

 

The two cities are 480 miles far apart.
