Jeremy is driving to a friend's house that is 72 miles away from his home. The scale on Jeremy's map is 1/2 inch is equivalent to 8 miles. How far is it on the map from Jeremy's house to his friend's house?

(1/2) / 8   =   x  / 72      cross-multiply

 

72 (1/2)  =  8x

 

36  =   8x       divide both sides  by  8

 

36/8  = x  =  9/2  =  2.25 in
