The scale of a map is 113 inches = 8 miles. The distance between two cities on the map is 8 inches. What is the actual distance, in miles, between the two cities?

Solution:

113 inches=8 miles, solve for 8 inches

 

1 inch=8/113 miles

8 inches: 8/113*8=64/113=.566 repeats

I think the scale on your map should be 1 1/3 inches per 8 miles. If that is the case, then:

8 / (4/3)  x  8 = 48 miles - the distance between the two cities.
