    Answer:

    282.67\ mi  or  282\frac{2}{3}\ mi

    Step-by-step explanation:

    step 1

    Find the total distance on a map between Smithville to Clarksville

    334+514=848\ in

    step 2

    Find the actual distance

    The scale on a map is equal to \frac{12}{4}\frac{in}{mi}

    Applying proportion

    \frac{12}{4}\frac{in}{mi}=\frac{848}{x}\frac{in}{mi}\\ \\x=848*4/12\\ \\x=282.67\ mi

    Convert to mixed number

    282.67\ mi=282\frac{2}{3}\ mi

    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    1/2 over 4 = 15/4 over x

    4/1=/15/4= 60/4*2/1=120/4=30

    repeat the step but instead of 15/4 to 21/4

    anyways it’s 72
