I’m working on a Algebra question and need guidance to help me study.
The average number of daily phone calls, C, between two cities varies jointly as the product of their populations, P1 and P2 , and inversely as the square of the distance, d, between them.
- Calculate the distance in miles between your current city and the capital city of your state. (If you live in the capital of your state, choose a different city in your state to complete the problem.) Use any mapping application (i.e., Google® Maps) to determine this distance.
- Use a search engine to determine the approximate populations of the two cities.
- Determine the average number of phone calls between the two cities using the formula above. Show all calculations.

I live in Savannah, GA
Using a classmate’s research, find the average number of calls between the city in which you currently live and the city in which your classmate resides. Again, use any mapping application to find the distance between your cities. Show all calculations. Be sure to reply to your classmate’s original post with this information.
This is one of my classmates post you can use for part 2.
So, Muncie, Has a population of 2,758 and Indianapolis has a population of 872,680
The distance from Muncie to Indianapolis is 63 miles
The formula we are using today to determine the number of phone calls is:
C= the average amount of phone calls between Muncie and Indianapolis
