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 C is correct.

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

yes, you right. Sandy wrote wrongly but the explanation is good as well as the OA. Only he wrote C instead of D. Thank to pointed out

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.
