# How do you solve the proportion 8/m=32/52?

Apr 29, 2015

we are given:
$\frac{8}{m}$ $=$ $\frac{32}{52}$

Shifting, m to the R.H.S (numerator) and shifting 32 to the L.H.S denominator.

now we get fraction:
$\frac{8}{32}$ $=$ $\frac{m}{52}$

again ,
Shifting 52 to the L.H.S numerator , thereby leaving the unknown m at the R.H.S

now solving,
$\frac{8}{32}$ X52 $=$ m ,
we get m $=$ 13,

therefore the proportion is :
$\frac{8}{13}$ $=$ $\frac{32}{52}$

note: on dividing each of the values at L.H.S and R.H.S we obtain the same value of 0.61, so L.H.S = R.H.S and it is in proportion
