2 3/4 in.

Please help! Thank you in advance.

  • Math -

    2 3/4 in = 2.75 inches

    so just multiply that by 60

  • Math -

    2.75*60=165 miles

    It would 165 miles.

    ok, thank you.

    u can also do this, but u can do it the easier way, in ur opinion

    2 inches=120 miles
    3/4 mile= 45 miles
    u find that out by dividing the original 60 miles by 4 and then multiplying that by 3
    120+45=165 miles
