Calculation:
Let the amount of money made by the restaurant is x.
The proportion can be written as:
$\frac{545}{110}=\frac{x}{53}$
The ratios can be simplified further by doing cross product:
$\frac{545}{110}=\frac{x}{53}$
$545\left(53\right)=110\left(x\right)$
$110x=28885$
$\frac{110x}{110}=\frac{28885}{110}$
$x=262.590$

Step 1
For the equation
$\frac{545}{110}=\frac{x}{53}$
The cross product is
$545×53=110×x$
Solving for x
$x=\frac{545×53}{110}$
and reducing
$x=262.59090909091$

Step 1
$\frac{545}{110}=\frac{x}{53}$
Multiply both sides of the equation by 5830, the least common multiple of 110, 53
$53×545=110x$
Multiply 53 and 545 to get 28885.
$28885=110x$
Swap sides so that all variable terms are on the left hand side.
$110x=28885$
Divide both sides by 110.
$x=\frac{28885}{110}$
Reduce the fraction $\frac{28885}{110}$ to lowest terms by extracting and canceling out 5.
$x=\frac{5777}{22}$
