A propotion is a math method. For example 3 over 100 = x over 50, you crossmultipy both 3 times 50 and 100 times x, then you'll get 150 = 100x, then you have to get x by itsel…f so you divide 100 from both sides and that leaves you with.(basicly you just cross multiply= 3/100*x/50) Multiply 100 times 50 then make another fraction starting with that answer for 100*50(at the bottom) then multiply that answer times 3.and so you get 1000 over 15000. That can be reduced to 15. (MORE)
