    A boat can travel 42 miles on 6 gallons of gasoline. How much gasoline will it need to go to 364 miles? @YoloShroom

    So the answer is 7? @YoloShroom isnt supposed to be x in the bottom? @YoloShroom

    7 isnt the answer, but 7 is the way to get to the answer. So, since it's 7 miles to one gallon, we know that if we find how many times 7 goes into 364, that we'll get the number of gallons we need right?
