**Answers:**

Lets to the ratio thing:

(3/4) inches/25 miles = X inches/200 miles ==> solve for X

(3/4)/25 = 0.03 = X/200 ==>

X = 0.03 * 200 = 6 inches

The cites are 6 inches apart on the map

For the next map, substitute 1/2 for 3/4. Easy peasy.

1. Answer= 6 inches...25 miles goes into 200 miles 8 times so 8 times 3/4 is 24/4 inches or 6 inches.

2. Answer = 4 inches..same concept..25 miles goes into 200 miles 8 times so 8 times 1/2 incehes is 8/2 or 4 inches.
