Here is a problem that on some homework I have no idea how to begin to solve (this is word for word btw): Joan mows 3 acres in 2 hrs. How long to mow .9 acre? Anyone know how to solve this?

$\displaystyle \frac{3}{2}=\frac{.9}{x}$ Now solve for x and that will give you how many hours
oh! Thank you so much, its been forever since I've done a problem like this so I didn't even think of it that way haha.
No problem
