Are the answers 4.5 and 7.5?

3. phi

I would use ratios 2 inches is to 25 miles as x inches is to 60 miles we would write that like this $\frac{2}{25}= \frac{x}{60}$ to "find x" , I would multiply both sides by 60, like this $\frac{2}{25}\cdot 60= \frac{x}{60}\cdot 60$ can you finish ?

$\frac{ 120 }{ 1500 }$ and $\frac{ X }{120 }$

@phi

6. phi

you should get $\frac{2\cdot 60}{25} = x$

7. horsegal244

oh 120

8. phi

I am not sure what you did but it is worth getting the idea (if you have time) $\frac{2}{25}= \frac{x}{60}$ if you multiply both sides by 60, this make the 60 on the right side "go away" because $\frac{x\cdot 60}{60} = \frac{x\cdot \cancel{60}}{\cancel{60}} =x$

9. phi

and on the left side $\frac{2\cdot 60}{25} = \frac{120}{25}$ so $x= \frac{120}{25}$ you can simplify that. what do you get ?

4.8
