2 right parenthesis
1 space cm equals 1 over 1400 cross times Actual space distance
rightwards double arrow Actual space distance equals 1400 space cm space equals 14 space straight m
So space 1 space cm space space represents space 14 space straight m
3 right parenthesis
1 space cm equals fraction numerator 1 over denominator 8 cross times 10 to the power of 6 end fraction cross times Actual space distance
rightwards double arrow Actual space distance equals 8 cross times 10 to the power of 6 cm space equals space 80 space km
