Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, now that I look at it again, they gave you an equation they wanted to use. The SP interval, for this problem, is just a number. The equation they want you to plug it into is, if n is the sp interval and x is the distance: n=0.00146x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Check to make sure you divided by .00146 and not .0146

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Try solving the equation again. If you don't know how, tell me. Double check you type in .00146 (with 2 zeroes)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok but what do I divide .00146 by?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You want to find x, the distance to the epicenter, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know how to isolate x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That'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!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The other side of the equation is n, the sp interval. So if you divide both sides, you should get: \frac{n}{.00146}=x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, \[\frac{ sp.distance }{ .00146 }=x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You were just off by a zero. Try 8/.00146 in your calculator again, making sure you type in both zeroes.
