Determine the distance on the ground if it is 37 m on the map. The scale on the map is 1: 1,000,000.

First, you need to convert the scale of the map to kilometers.

To do this, we divide 1,000,000 by 100,000, since there are 100,000 centimeters in 1 kilometer.

We get:

1,000,000 / 100,000 = 10 km in 1 cm.

To do this, in order to find the distance on the ground, we multiply the length of the segment by the resulting map scale in kilometers.


10 * 37 = 370 km.


The distance on the ground is 370 km.
