If an airplane travel 780 miles in 3 hr.

How many miles can it travel in 7 hr at the same rate? Write a proportion

Answer:

780 miles = 3hr
780/3 miles = 1hr

So 7 times 780/3 is how much it will travel in 7 hours. 1820 miles is the final answer.

Hope this helps Kevin

780 miles-3 hours
x miles-7 hours
x=(780*7)/3=1820 miles.
