How to solve proportions?

Solving proportions is easier than you think. Let’s solve a proportion with an example.

Example:

If ratio of pizzas to burgers is 3/5 in a party, how many of burgers will be there if there are total of 15 burgers.

Solution:

Step 1: Construct a proportion using the given values and x.

3/5 = x/15

Step 2: Apply cross multiplication to the above equation.

5x = 3 × 15

x = 45/5

x = 9

So, there will be 9 pizzas with 15 burgers.
