Apollo 13

Today during science we were discussing the distance between the Earth and Moon as well as the size comparison of both objects.  We mentioned that Apollo 13 was 2/3 of the way to the moon when one member of the crew said “Houston, we have a problem.”  What was the problem and what was the solution?
