we are given:

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

now we get fraction:

again ,

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

now solving,

we get m

therefore the proportion is :

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
