1. Solve for x in the following proportion:
3/7 = 2/x
A. x = 14
B. x = 7
C. x = 21/2
D. x = 14/3
2. A map is scaled so that 1 cm on the map is equal to 15 actual miles. If two cities on the map are 10 cm apart, proportion would you use to solve the problem?
A. map/actual = 1/15 = 10/x

@alainabbyboo22 its d i am sure look if 1 cm is 15 miles then 10 cm is 150 miles so when we solve all the given equations we see the correct answer is only occurring in d there fore its D. :)
