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 - ,

    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.
