Option A  – 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 Therefore, proportion can Aricela use to determine is .

So, option A is correct.
