    Answer:

    Option A  –  \frac{0.5}{2.75}=\frac{2}{d}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given : Aricela is trying to estimate the distance between her house and the park. On a map with a scale of 0.5 in. = 2 miles, the distance between her house and the park is 2.75 in.

    To find : Which proportion can Aricela use to determine the distance, d, between her house and the park?

    Solution :

    The distance between her house and the park is ‘d’ miles.

    A scale of 0.5 in. = 2 miles

    The distance between her house and the park is 2.75 in.

    i.e. the scale is 2.75 in. = d miles

    The proportion form is

    \frac{0.5\ in}{2.75\ in}=\frac{2\ miles}{d\ miles}

    Therefore, proportion can Aricela use to determine is  \frac{0.5}{2.75}=\frac{2}{d}.

    So, option A is correct.
