1" on the map represnts 1500" in real life therefore 1 square inch on the map represents .... square inches in real life therefore ........ Now convert to whatever unit is most convenient (perhaps square feet or square yards, ....)

3. so one square inch = 2,250,000 sq inches in real live, then 5 square inches = 11,250,000 sq inches?

converting to acres, 1.8 acres

anyone else get the same answer?
