## sani10 3 years ago What is the solution to the proportion 8/9 = M/72?

1. Romero

simply solve for M

2. Romero

8/9 = M/72 72 * 8/9 = M/72 * 72 72 * (8/9) = M

3. ash2326

We have $\frac{8}{9}=\frac{M}{72}$ Let's write this as $\frac{M}{72}=\frac{8}{9}$ multiply both side by 72 we get $M=\frac{8\times 72}{9}$ @sani10 can you solve now?
