Your immediate goal is to find a conversion factor: inches per mile. So, you've come up with 15 inches? And that 15 inches represents how many miles? then what's the conversion factor?
jchick
  • jchick
You shouldn't
jchick
  • jchick
You should have ten inches and then you divide that by 5
dakid88
  • dakid88
ok so 10 divided by 5 is 2

"How many miles does each inch on the map?" is a RATE (a rate of change). You count 10 inches and know that that 10 inches represents 5 miles. form the RATE OF CHANGE as follows:\[\frac{ 10 inches }{ 5miles }\]

  • mathmale
Next, reduce this. What is 10/5? Write your final result as follows: "Each inch on the map represents ______ miles." or as\[\frac{ ?inches }{ mile }.\]
