Question: : Use the map on the left to true distance from London to Berlin

Solution: First, use a ruler to measure the distance, in cm, between London and Madrid on the map.

Doing so, we learn that they are 2.6 cm apart. 

1 cm is worth 500 km, so to get the real distance we must multiply by 500:

2.6 \times 500 = 1300 km
