If we let x be how much Troy spent in US dollars, and the ratio between the US dollar and the Swiss franc is 1:2.2, then, it should be proportional to x : 20 1:2.2 :: x:20 Can you do it from here?

By the way, the proportion could also be written \[\frac{1}{2.2} = \frac{x}{20}\]

Tanya wants to order 50 pizzas for a party. However, the pizza supplier can deliver only 45 pizzas on the given date. How will you describe the relationship between demand and supply of pizzas?

Relationship between the and the is basically just screaming RATIO! so all you have to do is get what you want the relationship to be about and put them in the form a : b, and reduce it to lowest term as you would a fraction
