Aja and Emilie were riding their skateboards. They knew that they could ride 3 miles in 20 minutes. Homework Help ✎
How far can the girls ride in 45 minutes?
If y represents the distance in miles and x represents the time in minutes, write an equation to represent the distance traveled for any time.
Set up a proportion.
20y = 135
y = 6.75 miles
You can also use a proportion for this problem.
Multiply both sides by x to simplify the equation.
