A map is scaled so that 1 cm on the map is equal to 15 actual miles. If two cities on the map are 10 cm apart, proportion would you use to solve the problem?
A. map/actual=1/15=10/x
B.. map/actual = 15/1 = 10/x
C. map/actual = 15/1 = x/10
D. map/actual = x/15 = 10/1

1 cm corresponds to 15 actual miles so we can use 1/15 as one side of the equation 10 cm corresponds to x miles, so the other side would be 10/x
