Question

Set up a proportion and solve it to demonstrate this type of business application. (An example might be 5 hours / $20 = 10 hours / x). Your post should include all the steps involved in solving for your variable and explanations where needed (introducing your proportion and what it represents and an explanation of the solution.). Remember that setting the cross products (multiplications) equal, and then solving for x is the way to solve a proportion.

    see the explanation

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The problem could be

    A person earns $20 for working 5 hours.

    How much will a person earn if they work 10 hours?

    using proportion

    \frac{5\ h}{\$20}=\frac{10\ h}{x}

    Multiply in cross

    5x=10(200)

    divide by 5 both sides

    x=10(20)/5=\$40
