The cost of uniforms for 12 students is $144. How many students can get uniform for $60?

5 students can get uniforms for $60

Solution

If they are in direct variation,

Total number of uniforms get drecreased, if total cost is decreased

12 : y = 144 : 60y = 5

5 students can get uniforms for $60

No of students | cost of uniforms ($) |
---|---|

12 | 144 |

y | 60 |

Total number of uniforms get drecreased, if total cost is decreased

12 : y = 144 : 60

y =

12 x 60144

5 students can get uniforms for $60

Question:

Find the unknown value of x in the proportion.

3:6 :: x:10

Answer:

Find the unknown value of x in the proportion.

3:6 :: x:10

Answer:

step 1

Write the given ratios in fraction form

3:6 =

36

x:10 =

x10

step 2

Find the Means & Extremes

3 x 10 = x x 6

Extremes = 3, 10

Means = 6, x

36

=

x10

Extremes = 3, 10

Means = 6, x

step 3

Rearrange the statement to find x

x = 5

x =

3 x 106

step 4

The missing term in the proportion is 5

Therefore the proportion is 3:6 = 5:10

Therefore the proportion is 3:6 = 5:10
