I am not a Math student whatsoever :S this is in my Geography course and I'm very confused can anyone help me out? I'm a History Major *shy face*
Imagine that a woodlot 2x3km in size has been marked on two separate maps. Map A has a scale (in mixed units) of 1cm: 80m and Map B has a scale of 5mm:110m.
a. What are the Representative Fractions of Map A and Map B
b. Which map has the larger scale? (Where 1/10 is a larger scale than 1/20)
c. Which ma shows the most detail of woodlot
d. What are the dimensions of the woodlot (in mm) on each of the two maps...
Any help and guidance would help. I want to learn this, I need to learn it...
