    8*8=64 2*2=4 so four is the answer

    Nope \[\frac{ 8 }{ 64 }=\frac{ 2 }{ n }\] should be 16 Fraction=proportion

    A family drove their minivan across the country, traveling from Los Angeles to Miami. The trip covered 2,950 miles and gas was $3.20 a gallon, the family paid $377.60 for gas the whole trip how many gallons of gas did they use? I got 118 by dividing $377.60/$3.20 si that right?
