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

So u dont even have a guess what the answer is cuz i dont understand this question at all

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.

  • anonymous
550?

  • anonymous
Check to make sure you divided by .00146 and not .0146
anonymous
  • anonymous
Divide that bye what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Try solving the equation again. If you don't know how, tell me. Double check you type in .00146 (with 2 zeroes)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok but what do I divide .00146 by?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You want to find x, the distance to the epicenter, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes....
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you know how to isolate x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No....
anonymous
  • anonymous
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!

less than 1 km?
anonymous
  • anonymous
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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sorry, \[\frac{ sp.distance }{ .00146 }=x\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok so im right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
You were just off by a zero. Try 8/.00146 in your calculator again, making sure you type in both zeroes.
