Understanding Proportions
A proportion is two ratios that are equal to each other. The two ratios can be written as fractions, decimals, or percents. Proportions can help us compare two parts of a whole. For example, if 4 out of 10 students are girls, the proportion of girls is 4/10. In proportion problems, we use cross multiplication to solve for an unknown value. For example, if a = 4/5, what is 5a? The answer is 5a = 4*5 = 20.
