1. ## Counting the scale?

Hey!

How can I count a scale for a map?
I know the size of the paper and the size of the area,
but I need the scale.
Thanks!

you should try a representation of the size like for every 2 km= 1cm.

3. O.K. Let's say that the maps size is 15cm * 10cm and the area is 35m2

How can I count the scale of the map?

Thanks!!

4. Let's make the map 14 cm x 10 cm and the area 7 m x 5 m. Then you can see that 14 cm is 7 m, therefore 1 cm on the map is 50 cm in reality.
