proportion rule; the product of the extreme terms of the proportion is equal to the product of the middle terms of the proportion; a and d are extreme; b and c are averages; a/b=c/d; => a•d=b•c; we multiply according to the rule with a cross;
Find the unknown term of the proportion:
x/5=5.4/3.6,
X•3.6=5•5.4
3.6x=27
X=27:3.6
X= 7.5
Examination
Х/5=5.4/3.6
7.5/5=1.5
1.5=1.5
