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

algebra 
Martin,
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.
