The Mississippi River is about 8 times the length of the Hudson River. If the Hudson River is about 300 miles long, about many miles long is the Mississippi River? Write and solve an equation.
8x=Length of mississippi river. x = length of hudson river. (which is 300) So 300x8=2400 Thus it is 2400 miles long.
The equation is 8x X is the Hudson So it would be 300x8 The answer is 2400
