18,480 ft

Apply proportional relationships to rates, similarity, and scale.

Recall that a ratio is a comparison of two numbers by division and a proportion is an equation stating that two ratios are equal. In a proportion, the cross products are equal.

If a proportion contains a variable, you can cross multiply to solve for the variable. When you set the cross products equal, you create a linear equation that you can solve by using the skills that you learned in Lesson 2-1.

Reading Math to solve for the variable. When you set the cross products equal, you create a linear equation that you can solve by using the skills that you learned in Lesson 2-1.

In a ÷ b = c ÷ d, b and c are the means, and a and d are the extremes. In a proportion, the product of the means is equal to the product of the extremes.

Because percents can be expressed as ratios, you can use the proportion to solve percent problems.

Remember!

Percent is a ratio that means per hundred.

For example:

30% = 0.30 =

EXAMPLE 1 Finding the Part proportion to solve percent problems.

A. Find 20% of 60.

B. Find 210% of 8.

C. Find 4% of 36.

EXAMPLE 2 Finding the Percent proportion to solve percent problems.

A. What percent of 60 is 15?

B. What percent of 35 is 7?

C. 27 is what percent of 9?

EXAMPLE 3 Finding the Whole proportion to solve percent problems.

A. 40% of what number is 14?

B. 120% of what number is 90?

C. 48 is 15% of what number?

Example 2: Solving Percent Problems proportion to solve percent problems.

A poll taken one day before an election showed that 22.5% of voters planned to vote for a certain candidate. If 1800 voters participated in the poll, how many indicated that they planned to vote for that candidate?

You know the percent and the total number of voters, so you are trying to find the part of the whole (the number of voters who are planning to vote for that candidate).

Example 2 Continued proportion to solve percent problems.

Method 1 Use a proportion.

Method 2 Use a percent equation.

Divide the percent by 100.

Percent (as decimal) whole = part

0.2251800 = x

Cross multiply.

22.5(1800) = 100x

405 = x

Solve for x.

x = 405

So 405 voters are planning to vote for that candidate.

Cross multiply.

100(434) = 35x

x = 1240

Solve for x.

x = 1240

Clay High School has 1240 students.

A proportion to solve percent problems.rate is a ratio that involves two different units. You are familiar with many rates, such as miles per hour (mi/h), words per minute (wpm), or dollars per gallon of gasoline. Rates can be helpful in solving many problems.

Reading Math proportion to solve percent problems.

The ratio of the corresponding side lengths of similar figures is often called the scale factor.

Similar figures have the same shape but not necessarily the same size. Two figures are similar if their corresponding angles are congruent and corresponding sides are proportional.

Example 5: Nature Application

The tree in front of Luka’s house casts a 6-foot shadow at the same time as the house casts a 22-fot shadow. If the tree is 9 feet tall, how tall is the house?

Sketch the situation. The triangles formed by using the shadows are similar, so Luka can use a proportion to find h the height of the house.

6h = 198

h = 33

The house is 33 feet high.
