A:
Given:The distance between the two buildings on a map = 14 cmThe scale is 1:35000.To find:The actual distance in km.Solution:The scale is 1:35000.It means 1 cm on map = 35000 cm in actual.Using this conversion, we get14 cm on map = [tex]14\times 35000[/tex] cm in actual.                        = [tex]490000[/tex] cm in actual.                        = [tex]4.9\times 1000o0[/tex] cm in actual.                        = [tex]4.9[/tex] km in actual.          [tex][1\text{ km}=100000\text{ cm}][/tex]Therefore, the actual distance between two buildings is 4.9 km.
