The map below shows the principal cotton producing areas in Florida in 1850. During this time period, cotton that was gathered in the county seat of Marianna was taken to St. Marks for shipment. On the map, the distance between Marianna and St. Marks is 1 inches. If the scale of the map is 1 inch = 40 miles, what is the distance, in miles, from Marianna to St. Marks?

Take out a ruler, connect both points, check the distance in inches, and if every inch is 40 miles, then you simply have to multiply what you've found by 40
