Approach:
If two ratios are equal then it is a proportion. If pq and rs are two ratios, then pq=rs is a proportion.
Ex: 34=1520
For finding unknown numbers in proportions, we use cross product to find the unknown number.
Ex: 27=x14
Here in the example x is the unknown number. To calculate the value of x, we use the cross product.
Calculation:
Given 24n=81559
Apply the cross product in order to find the unknown number.
24×59=n×815
Cancel out the common factors.
403=8n15
Multiply both the sides by 158
403×158=8n15×158
Cancel out common factors
25=n
Final statement: The solution for the proportion 24n=81559 for the indicated variable is n=25
