28 miles represented by 1 inch
1 mile represented by (1/28) inch
383.6 miles represented by (1/28) * 383.6
approximately = 14

We should use estimation here as the answer options are not close .(28*10 =280 and 28*20 = 560 , hence we select the only option between 10 and 20 )
Answer C

We can Test the answers with a strategy.

Without a lot of calculations and with sense of numbers, you can eliminate choice A & B.

Test choice D, if it does not fit, we can go directly for choice C or E.

D= 21.2, close to 20.........20 * 28=560 far away of 383.6

Clearly our answer is C

10 inches will give us 280 miles.

So we are left with about 100 miles. 1 inch for 28 miles means we won't need more than 4.

Only Option C.

We can create the proportion:

1/28 = n/383.6

Cross-multiplying, we have:

28n = 383.6

n = 13.7 inches

Answer: C
