How many state boundaries are completely defined by longitude and latitude?

We Answered:

If it asks for boundaries completely defined by latitude and longitude, it means that state has no natural borders like oceans or rivers and that the boundaries run east/west and north/south only, no diagonals. The only states that have all straight boundaries are Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah. Even New Mexico has a little bit of river for part of its boundaries.

Map reading questions?

We Answered:

A scale of 1:250,000 means that 1 inch on the map corresponds to 250,000 inches on the ground = 3.9457 miles. The map should have latitude / longitude lines on it. If it doesn't, then you can use 1 degree latitude = 69 miles (approximately). To get a more exact number, you need to know the latitude.

1 degree of longitude = 69 miles at the equator, and 0 miles at the poles.
