Step 1
A proportion is an equality of 2 fractions, so to check if 2 fractions form a proportion you have to check if they are equal.
L=924=38
R=1540=38
Both sides are equal, so the fractions form a proportion.
924=1540

Step 1
This proportion is equal to 2 fractions, so to check if 2 fractions of a proportion are equal, you must check if they are equal.
L=924
Lets reduce the fraction to simplest form by calculating HCF of numerator and denominator, which is 3 and then dividing both by 3
924=9÷324÷3
924=38
R=1540
Lets reduce the fraction to simplest form by calculating HCF of numerator and denominator, which is 5 and then dividing both by 5
1540=15÷540÷5
1540=38
Both sides are equal, so the fractions form a proportion.
924=1540
