# If you are drawing a map where the scale is 1 inch equals 2 miles how many inches would it take to show 12 miles?

12 miles divided by 2 miles equals 6 inches so it is 6 inches dah

### 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.
