#fanday friday: IFF ½ of 8 = 5 and the same proportion holds, what is the value of 1/5 of 24?
I'm gonna say.... 6.
If \(8/2=5\), then \(8/5=2\). Since 24=8*3, \(24/5=3*2=6\).
okay so that was very fast and you're right lol :) but I'm ur fan already so.... :P but cool xD
Is this basically it? |dw:1370038364593:dw|
That looks like another way to do it.
ddcamp, where did ur 24/4 come from?
smart way to think about it, love that! i appreciate that math is not a one way thing :) didn't even know that way of solving it existed, cool :)
