It would be helpful if you actually posted a question...
Are you supposed to find the map scale?
(50 yards)(36 inches/yard) = 1800 inches
Scale:  34:1800
1800/34 = 52.94:1
The scale is 1:52.94    each inch on the map represents 52.94 inches in reality
Unless you are supposed to be determining something else??
Perhaps you should post the COMPLETE question.
