**Anonymous**, Sunday, December 4, 2011 at 12:15pm6 / 9 = 100 / x Multiply both sides with x

6 x / 9 = 100 Multiply both sides with 9

6 x = 9 * 100

6 x = 900 Divide both sides with 6ž

x = 900 / 6

x = 150 ft

OR

9 / 6 = 1.5

x / 100 = 1.5 Multiply both sides with 100

x = 1.5 * 100

x = 150 ft
