  3. scale:
    4 cm : 12 km
    4 cm : 12000 m
    4 cm : 1200000 cm
    1 : 300,000 <----- scale without units

    for that scale:
    1 cm : 3,000 m
    1 cm^2 : 9,000,000 m^2
    32 cm^2 : 288,000,000 m^2
    we know 1 hectare = 100 m by 100 m or 10,000 m^2
    so 288,000,000 m^2 = 288,000,000/10,000 hectares
    = 28,800 hectares
