Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Do I use 12.75 to set up a proportion for the two areas, though (which solving would be more difficult in my opinion), or should I simply set up a proportion for 17 and 4 to figure out the length of OK

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So...my proportion should look like this: 17/4 = OK/2
