A map is drawn to the scale of 1 : 100, 000. If the distance between 2 towns is 2km what would be the distance between them on the map?

$20 m m = 2 c m$

Explanation:

$2 k m = 2000 m = 2 , 000 , 000 m m$
The ratio:
$1 : 100 , 000 | \cdot 20 m m$
$20 m m : 2 , 000 , 000 m m$

The distance on the map is $20 m m = 2 c m$
