On a MaP, The length of a naturecenter trail is 8.2 centimeters. If the scale is 3 centimeters to 24 kilometers, what is the actual length of the trail?

Set up this ratio, cross multiply, and solve for x.
3/8.2 = 8.2/x 
The ratio should be 3/24=8.2/x

The answer would be 65.6 kilometers
Thanks for your help:)
