Do you mean its *fractional* scale?
If we assume that each kilometer in real life is equal to 1 cm on the map, then the fractional scale would be:
1 cm : 1 km
But we need the same units to make this work, so convert km to cm:
1 km x 1000 m/km x 100 cm/m
= 100,000 cm
The ratio is:
1 cm : 100,000 cm
But now you can drop the units which are the same.
1 : 100,000
