162.5 miles

Work Step by Step

The length on the map and the actual length are proportional. We will call x the actual distance between the two towns. Thus, we set up the following equation: 25/1=x/6.5. We multiply both sides of the equation by 6.5 to cancel out division and to obtain that 162.5=x. Thus, the actual distance is 162.5 miles.
