Homework Help: math

Posted by Aj on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 4:55pm.

Oregon is about 400 miles from west to east, and 300 miles from north to south. If a map of Oregon is 15 inches tall (from north to south), about how wide is the map?

PLEASE HELP AND EXPLAIN IT

Set up a proportion:

15/300 (the ratio of inches to miles, north to south)

and x/400 (the ratio of inches to miles, west to east)

Therefore,

15/300 = x/400

Can you solve from there?

not really
i'm confused

What kind of math do you need help with like decimals or what.

Are you needed with most tipes of math or just some tipes of math
