# If 10 miles is about 16 kilometers and the distance between two towns is 45 miles, use a ratio table to find the distance between the towns in kilometers?

The distance between the towns is $72$ Kilometers.
$10 \left(m\right) : 16 \left(k m\right) = 45 \left(m\right) : x \left(k m\right) \mathmr{and} \frac{10}{16} = \frac{45}{x} \mathmr{and} x = \frac{16 \cdot 45}{10} = 72 k m$
The distance between the towns is $72$ Kilometers.[Ans]
