I am not able to understand this question.

-In 1979 approximately 1/3 of the 37.3 million airline passengers traveling to or from the United States used Kennedy Airport. If the number of such passengers that used Miami Airport was 1/2 the number that used Kennedy Airport and 4 times the number that used Logan Airport, approximately how many millions of these passengers used Logan Airport that year?
(A) 18.6
(B) 9.3
(C) 6.2
(D) 3.1
(E) 1.6

1/3 of 37.3 ~= 12.6 mill. That is the number of passengers at Kennedy airport.
I am not able to understand what it means by "If the number of such passengers"?? Does it mean that 12.6? Or does it mean the total 37.3?

Thanks.

Simply ignore that piece of sentence. Its there to distract you. Read: passengers that used Miami Airport was 1/2 the number that used Kennedy Airport.... I think it sounds much clearer now...

If it says, "If the number of such passengers . . .", I read it as "The number of such passengers . . ." and continue with the sentence.

K = 1/3*37.3
M = 1/6*37.3
L = 1/24*37.3 ~1.6

so E
