Hello!
I am new to math forums and am not even sure I’m in the right thread but will give it a go!
I am trying to determine how many days it will take to mow 295 hectares when my mower has a blade 12’ wide and can move at 4km/hour.
Attached is what I believe to be correct but am uncertain if you can cross multiply squared numbers.
Thanks in advance!

You can cross multiply NUMBERS. How you got the numbers, by squaring or other wise, is irrelevant.

Ok - does this look correct to you then?

Right, ok so then do you believe the equation in the photo to be correct then?
