I think you are close, but let me double check. I'm not totally sure on the 54-x part.

If it makes any difference I just corrected the wrong parenthesis between 46 and 54.

Accidentally did a ) when I meant an (...

Ah... I see! No worries.

Alright, perfect! We are both on the same page. :)

Yes, I just don't know how to make that equation then.

*set up that equation, to make that sound better.

Okay.

We know these distances add up to a total of 54 from the question. So,
62x + 46x = 54

Okay! Thank you! I was just overcomplicating this!

Next I would combine 62x and 46x to make 108x, then divide 54 by 108, correct?

Good! And then what do you get?

0.53 is close enough since I only have to round to the nearest tenth! Thank you so much!

If I'm not mistaken 54/108 is actually 0.5 exactly so no rounding required. :)

Not a problem, you are doing great!

Interesting... let me check our calculations to ensure we didn't do anything silly. :)

Something seems wrong with the answer choices.

Good luck! Your welcome, hope you get credit for the thinking! :)
