lived in the same city as the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Disney World
would ever want to leave but let's just say they did how many miles would
it take them before they realized how good they had it in return from [Man flying on a broomstick looking sad]
Jacksonville well using the Albers equal-area projection as our key we can
see that a one-way trip from Orlando to Jacksonville is just about 120 miles so [Orlando and Jacksonville on a map]
answer A is incorrect for this particular situation it would be fine if somebody
was staying in Jacksonville for good but seriously Orlando has magic.... Jacksonville has
an Applebee's anyway answer B is 160 mile and that's enough to get us to Jacksonville [Man flies plane to Jacksonville]
but that would only get us about a third of the way back to Orlando and
considering we can't apparate the rest of the way, that's not going to cut it
So that eliminates answers A and B if we use the equal projection key to measure answers
D and E we overshoot Orlando by a distance of at least 80 miles and land somewhere [Man lands plane into a lake]
in Lake Okeechobee and yeah that's pretty dang cool name for a lake but we'd
rather end up somewhere that doesn't require evading alligators...
which means correct answer is C this is an example of a typical map with many
layers of information including highways major cities and natural features [Highway road, tall buildings and mountains appear]
looking past all that jazz and focusing on the two cities in the scale and mile
we can surmise the distance from Orlando to Jacksonville about 120 miles around
true it would be 240 but we're pretty sure there are faster ways to get to [Wizard approaches fireplace]
Orlando like... floo- powder what could possibly go wrong...
