Write down the scale of the map if a 1 km segment on the terrain is shown on the map of 10 cm segments.

To solve the problem, you first need to determine what distance on the ground is depicted in 1 cm of the map.

To do this, divide 1 kilometer by the length of the segment on the map.

We get:

1/10 = 0.1 km in 1 cm of the map.

We translate the resulting distance into centimeters.

Since 1 km – 1000 meters, and 1 meter – 100 centimeters, we get:

0.1 * 1000 * 100 = 10000.

In this case, the scale of this map will be equal to:

1: 10000.

This scale is nominal and is called the ten-thousandth scale, since 100 meters of terrain are displayed in 1 cm of the map.
