Calculation:
The product of the numerator of the ratio and of the denominator of the other is known as a cross product. Cross products can be used to determine whether the ratios form a proportion or not. If the cross products are equal, then the ratios form a proportion.
6015=12y [Write the proportion.]
60×y=15×12 [Apply cross products property.]
60y=180 [Multiply.]
60y60=18060 [Divide each side by 24 to place the variable on one side of the equation]
y=3 [Simplify.]
Hence, the solution of the proportions 6015=12y is y=3.
