Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\large { \begin{array}{ccllll} distance&hour \\\hline\\ \frac{1}{6}&\frac{3}{5}\\ x&1 \end{array}\implies \cfrac{\frac{1}{6}}{x}=\cfrac{\frac{3}{5}}{1}\impliedby \textit{solve for "x"} }\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so.. what did you get for the crossmultiplication?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so \(\bf \cfrac{\frac{1}{6}}{x}=\cfrac{\frac{3}{5}}{1} \\ \quad \\ \cfrac{1}{6}\cdot 1=\cfrac{3}{5}\cdot x\) there... what would that give you for "x"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well... you may want to brush up your fraction multiplication first I'd think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\bf \cfrac{\frac{1}{6}}{x}=\cfrac{\frac{3}{5}}{1} \implies \cfrac{1}{6}\cdot 1=\cfrac{3}{5}\cdot x \implies \cfrac{1}{6}=\cfrac{3}{5}x\implies \cfrac{1}{6}=\cfrac{3x}{5}\) if you crossmultiply that, and solve for "x".... what would that give?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{1}{6}=\frac{3 x}{5} \] Multiply each side by 5/3. The result will be that x has a cooeficient of "1", one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is what I calculated when the final calculation was rounded to the nearest cent. Some stores will probably always round up to the next cent.
