Calculation:
Given $\frac{4.25}{6.03}=\frac{5}{y}$
Apply the cross product in order to find the unknown number.
$4.25×y=6.03×5$
$4.25y=30.15$
Divide both the sides by 4.25.
$\frac{4.25y}{4.25}=\frac{30.15}{4.25}$
$y=7.09411$
Round of the nearest hundredth
$y=7.09$
Final statement: The solution for the proportion $\frac{4.25}{6.03}=\frac{5}{y}$ for the indicated variable is $y=7.09$
