## How to calculate proportion?

To calculate proportions, use cross multiplication with the known values (numerator and denominator) and then divide the result by the remaining number that wasn't used in the multiplication.

Example: You organize a party with a certain ratio of pizzas to burgers, which is 3/5. If you have a total of 15 burgers, how many pizzas should be there?

Step 1: Set up a proportion using the given values and the variable x.

$$\frac{3}{5} = \frac{x}{15}$$

Step 2: Use cross multiplication with the known values and divide the result by the remaining number.

$$\frac{3 \times 4}{2} = \frac{12}{2} = 6$$
