| **The scale of the map is 1: 200000. The distance between two villages on the map is 10 cm. What is the distance between these villages in the area.**

We find the distance between villages on the ground in centimeters.

To do this, we multiply the scale of the map by the length of the segment on the map.

Will:

200,000 * 10 = 2,000,000 cm.

We translate this distance into meters.

To do this, divide the resulting value by 100, since 1 meter is 100 cm.

Will:

2,000,000 / 100 = 20,000 meters.

We translate the resulting value into kilometers.

Since 1 km is 1000 meters, it will be:

20,000/1000 = 20 km.

Answer:

Between the villages 20 km.
