**Martin**, Sunday, August 28, 2011 at 2:50am230% 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.
