Explanation

The median home price in Danbury = $95950.

The median home price in Trenton = $66000

So \(X \times $66000 = $95950.\)

So \(X \approx 1\frac{1}{2}\)

Hence option D is correct.

i think the answer is D (1 and 1/2) not C (1 and 2/3), please check it out.

We have nothing to do with the data in 1st table as all the required data is available in table 2.

As prices of houses are all given as median, we need not further process them and can directly put them in the equation.

From there on, the response given by Sandy continues.

Nothing wrong with the process of solution but with the original answer choice given. I think you misinterpret my thought.

Hi, can someone give a better way to convert complicated fractions to answers. I get it was 95950/66000. When i use calculator, it was 1.45. How do I get to 1 1/2 from there?

Once you get 1.45 o the calculator check the options to see which among them is th closest.
