haas_mba07,
I made the same mistake before when I posted this question.
There are some data missing right?

I think that question needs to be, follow the link below:
http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic ... ight=logan

Kennedy = 37.3/3
Miami = (K/2) = 37.3/6, but Miami also is equal to 4*Logan

Logan = (37.3/6)/4 = 37.3/24. about 1.6 A

K = 37.3

i thought i read number of such passengers that used Miami Airport was the twice the number that used Kennedy Airport .....

so i did M = 2K and M = 4L so K = 2L and L = K/2

but on reading the q again seems like there was no "twice"....i think i was hallucinating....and is K/4
