### Would 1 inch equal 14 mile or 400 miles why?

To answer that question, I would need the context which details
a scale. If one inch on a scale equals 14 miles, that scale remains
the same. So two inches (which equals 1 times 2) would translate
into 28 miles (because 14 times 2 is 28). The same would hold true
for 400 miles. If one inch equals 400 miles, two inches equals 800
miles, and three inches equals 1200 miles.
