Given that the scale for the map is
1: 50000
means that 1 centimter on the map represents 50000 units on the ground
the units may be kilometers
then what you do is to multiply the distance from A to B by 50000
ie 49 * 50000 = 2450000unit on the
but remember to confirm the units used
if kilometers or miles.
