In our class we have a map of our municipality with scale 1: 500. The distance of our school from the beach is 12 cm on the map how much is the actual distance;
I dont really wanna give you the main anser i know = Spioler alert
your clue is timesing, times the distance by the scale of the map
500 x 12 =6,000 cm
6000 / 100 =60 meters - actual distance to the beach.
