    I got it just by searching for "s-p interval epicenter distance site:.edu"

    Actually, now that I look at it again, they gave you an equation they wanted to use. The S-P interval, for this problem, is just a number. The equation they want you to plug it into is, if n is the s-p interval and x is the distance: n=0.00146x

    Tell me what answer you get and I'll double-check it with mine.

    Check to make sure you divided by .00146 and not .0146

    Try solving the equation again. If you don't know how, tell me. Double check you type in .00146 (with 2 zeroes)

    Ok but what do I divide .00146 by?

    You want to find x, the distance to the epicenter, right?

    Do you know how to isolate x?

    That's fine. You want just a equation that is x=the answer. x is multiplied by .00146 right now. So divide both sides by .00146, and you get x!

    The other side of the equation is n, the s-p interval. So if you divide both sides, you should get: \frac{n}{.00146}=x

    Sorry, \[\frac{ sp.distance }{ .00146 }=x\]

    You were just off by a zero. Try 8/.00146 in your calculator again, making sure you type in both zeroes.
