On a map, 0.4 inches is equal to 5 miles. Robert wants to go from where his house is to a soccer field hosting a tournament that is 2 inches away. How far is the actual distance from his house to the soccer field?
0.4 inches is 5 miles, so 1 inch equals 5/0.4 inches = 50/4 inches = 12.5 miles.
So 2 miles must be 2 x 12.5 miles = 25 miles.
