about two-fifths of the total area of Michigan is covered by water. This is about 40,000 mi SQUARED(2) .what is the total area of Michigan ? write an equation and solve.

CHOICES $a : c \div \frac{ 2 }{ 5 } = 40,000 ; 16,000 mi ^{2}$ $b : \frac{ 2 }{ 5 } c = 40,000 ; 16,000 mi ^{2}$ $c : \frac{ 2 }{ 5 } c = 40,000 ;100,000 mi ^{2}$ $d : c \div \frac{ 2 }{ 5 } = 40,000 ;100,000 mi ^{2}$

let x is the total area of Michigan. so, the equation giving us 2/5 x = 40,000 solve for x hint : multiple by 5/2 to both sides

ok i will tell you what i get hold on

5. ashlynn143

ok i got x = 10,000
