On a map, the length of the road from Town F to Town G is measured to be 18 inches. On this map, \(\frac{1}{4}\) inch represents an actual distance of 10 miles. What is the actual distance, in miles, from Town F to Town G along this road?



Here we are given a ratio: \(\frac{1}{4}\) inch on the map = 10 miles, so 1 inch on the map = 40 miles. If the map-distance between the towns is 18 inches, then the actual distance must be  \(18 \times 40 = 720\).
