Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Part A: The amount of inches for 60 miles is 4.8. This is because I cross multiplied this equation 2 • 25 x • 60 which equals 120/25, then after I got the answer I divided 120 by 25 and it came out as 4.8! Part B: One fourth of an inch is 3.125 miles because if we take the 25 and divide it by 2 it equals 12.5, then after i divided 12.5 by 4 to get to 1/4 of a mile.. Which equaled 3.125!
