Solution Let n represent the smaller number. 7 Problem If 5 times the sum of a number and 6 is increased by 3, the result is two less than 10 times the number. Find the number. 8 Problem For the equation 2x + 5 = 10, solve for x. 5x – 1 = –6, find x. fm Page 33 Saturday, January 31, 2004 5:15 PM 8 Ratio and Proportion TOPICS • • • Ratio Proportion Working with Ratio and Proportion RATIO A ratio is the established relationship between two numbers. For example, if someone says, “I’ll give you four to one for the Redskins over the Cowboys in the Super Bowl,” what does that person mean?

In this case, 1 has the same relation to 2 that 3 has to 6. What exactly is that relation? The number 1 is half the size of 2, and 3 is half the size of 6. Alternately, 2 is twice the size of 1, and 6 is twice the size of 3. WORKING WITH RATIO AND PROPORTION When working with ratio and/or proportion, the following key points are important to remember. • • One place where fractions are used in calculations is when ratios and proportions are involved, such as calculating solutions. fm Page 34 Saturday, January 31, 2004 5:15 PM • If one of the four items is unknown, the ratio is solved by dividing the two known items that are multiplied together by the known item multiplied by the unknown.
