If 3 miles are equivalent to 4.83 kilometers, then 11.27 kilometers are equivalent to how many miles?

(A) 2

(B) 5

(C) 7

(D) 6 1/2

(E) 7 1/3


Since 3 miles are equal to 4.83 kilometers, 1 mile is \(\frac{4.83}{3}\) kilometers.

Therefore, 11.27 kilometers will be \(11.27*\frac{3}{4.83} = \frac{4.83*7}{3}*\frac{3}{4.83} = 7\) miles(Option C)

P.S On the GMAT, the numbers are chosen mostly such that they cancel each other out.
Here 11.27 is x times over 4.83 => x = \(\frac{11.27}{4.83} = \frac{7}{3}\)

Simply set-up a proportion:

3/4.83 = x / 11.27

When dividing decimals multiply both terms by 100. We find 7.
