The distance from the parking garage to the train station is 6000 ft.

Work Step by Step

To determine the distance you would have to set up a proportion is 36/x=3/500. Using Cross Product Property you would end up with the equation 3x=18,000. To isolate x, you divide 3 from both the sides resulting with x=6000, which is the distance from the parking garage to the train station.
