    Answer:

    The real distance is 260 miles

    Step-by-step explanation:

    From the question;

    1.5 inches in map is 26 miles

    Thus;

    15 inches will be x miles

    To get the value of x, we do a cross-multiplication

    we have this as:

    15 * 26 = 1.5 * x

    x = (15 * 26)/1.5

    x = 10 * 26 = 260 miles
