**MEDAL** I'm creating flash cards for the ASVAB. Please help me write some basic formulas! If 400 people can be seated in 8 subway cars, how many people can be seated in 5 subway cars? A. 200 B. 250 C. 300 D. 250

OpenStudy (paxpolaris):

Using ratios:\[{400 \over 8 }=\frac x5\]

I see. So 400/8 * 5 = 250. Thanks for you help! :)
