    2 inches : 25 miles = x inches : 60 miles so fractions, right?

    cool, so i'll start and you solve, k? \(\huge \frac 2{25} = \frac x{60}\) \(\huge \frac {2 \times 60}{25} = \frac {x\times 60}{60}\) \(\huge \frac {120}{25} = \frac x{1}\) \(\huge \frac {120}{25} = x\)

    ok, so 1/4 = 0.25, yeah? \(\huge \frac 2{25} = \frac {0.25}{y}\) can you solve for y from here?

    so if 2 inches : 25 miles , 0.25 inches : y miles, right?
