Two measuring scales R and S. When R is 6, S is 30 ; when R is 24, S is 60. How much is R when S is 100?

thanks

This is an absurd question. First of all, there is no reason or justification to assume, based on the wording of the problem, that any relationship exists whatsoever between R and S. For all we know, these could be random numbers.

Even if we assume that there is, in fact, some relationship between R and S, there are an INFINITE number of equations that can relate R and S based on a sample set of TWO and no reason or justification to assume that the relationship is linear.
