How Would You Measure a Distance on the USA Map That Is Longer Then the Scale Bar?

Answer

The best way to measure a distance on the USA map that is longer then the scale bar is to use another temporary measuring device. A piece of string or your fingers can be used to determine the total distance on the map. Next, compare this to the scale bar and use the left over from the string on the bar a second time.
