The diameter of Pluto is 6/17 the diameter of Mars.Mars is 17/300 the diameter of Saturn.
A)What fraction of the diameter of Saturn is the diameter of Pluto?
B)The diameter of Saturn is 120 00 km.What is the diameter of Pluto?

A) In order to get your answer you need take the diameter of Mars and the diameter of pluto and multiply them together then simplify to the lowest answer possible.
B) In order to get the answer for this question you'll need to take the answer 1/5 and multiply it by 120,000 and you'll get your answer.

A)6/17 * 17/300=102/5100=1/50
B)1/50(120 000)=2400km

Pluto has a diameter of 2400 km.
