The correct answer is option C
On the map,
½ inches = 12mi
And the distance from Gainesville to Columbus is 4 inches.
Then, the actual distance from Gainesville to Columbus will be:
4 inches = ?
If ½ inches = 12
4 inches = 8 (1/2 inches)
8 12 = 96
Therefore, the actual distance between Gainesville to Columbus is 96mi.
