Given that Rashmi has a road map with a scale of 1cm representing 18km.

So we have a direct relation of scale distance and distance driven in the road.

For 72 km she drove on a road, Distance covered in the map would be 'x' cm

\frac{1cm}{18km}=\frac{x}{72km},

x=\frac{72}{18}cm\ or \ x=4cm.

Hence, For 72km driven in the road, we have to move a distance of 4cm on the map.
