  • Jack1
cool, so i'll start and you solve, k? \(\huge \frac 2{25} = \frac x{60}\) \(\huge \frac {2 \times 60}{25} = \frac {x\times 60}{60}\) \(\huge \frac {120}{25} = \frac x{1}\) \(\huge \frac {120}{25} = x\)

x= 4.8

  • Jack1
perfect!
OregonDuck
  • OregonDuck
so will x be the same for part b?
Jack1
  • Jack1
no, x is how many inches for 60 miles only
Jack1
  • Jack1
is that 1/4 or is it 14? for part B?
OregonDuck
  • OregonDuck
oh...ok then it is 1/4
Jack1
  • Jack1
ok, so 1/4 = 0.25, yeah? \(\huge \frac 2{25} = \frac {0.25}{y}\) can you solve for y from here?
Jack1
  • Jack1
so if 2 inches : 25 miles , 0.25 inches : y miles, right?
OregonDuck
  • OregonDuck
yup but how to get y still a little confused
OregonDuck
  • OregonDuck
wait, i got it y=3.125
Jack1
  • Jack1
