An airplane traveled from Boston to Las Vegas making
a stop in St. Louis. The plane traveled 2410 miles altogether,
which is 230% of the distance from Boston to St. Louis.
Find the distance from Boston to St. Louis to the nearest mile.
The answer is 1048 how do you get this answer

230% of the distance from Boston to St. Louis = 2.3 times the distance from Boston to St. Louis
With that information, you have that :
2.3 x (distance from Boston to St. Louis) = 2410
And you just divide both side of the equation by 2.3.
2410 divided by 2.3 is very close to 1048.
