On a map, the key states that 1 inch equals 10 miles. If you want to calculate how many miles is equivalent to 7 inches, which proportion would you use? A.the fraction 10 inch over 1 miles equals the fraction 7 inches over z miles B. the fraction 1 inch over 10 miles equals the fraction z inches over 7 miles C. the fraction 1 inch over 10 miles equals the fraction 7 inches over z miles D. the fraction z inch over 10 miles equals the fraction 7 inches over 1 miles

    Similar example: if 1 inch = 50 miles then 3 inches on a map would mean... 1 inch/50 miles = 3 inches/x miles or just 1/50 = 3/x

    so you can use that to find the actual distance x that 3 inches represents on a map

    you know the distance on the paper map, it's 7 inches it's not z inches

    z is the unknown distance in real life from point A to point B that the 7 inches represents on the paper map

    1 inch/10 miles = 7 inches/z miles or just 1/10 = 7/z

    we want arc RF, so we need to find central angle FDR

    to find the central angle, you use the inscribed angle theorem
