56*(4+15/60) 56*(240+15)/60 56*(255)/60 238 miles

Well you need to first convert 4hrs and 15 minutes to either a decimal hours or minutes, I would do minutes so 255 minutes. Then you set up a proportion of 56miles xmiles ----------- = --------------- Then solve 60x=(56*255) 60 minutes 255 minutes 60x=14280 ----- --------- 60 60 x= 238 so the answer is 238miles
