How do you solve the proportion #4/16 = s/8#?
we are given:
Here, s is the unknown
Leaving s at the R.H.S
We shift 8 to the L.H.S (numerator)
so now we get:
So our proportion is :
note: on solving the fractions we get an equal value of 0.25 on both the sides
L.H.S = R.H.S hence they are in proportion.
