part A. I call with p the price of 1 pound of potatoes, so I can write this proportion: \[\Large 3:4 = p:1\]

@Michele_Laino. In part A how did you come up with that answer
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
since if 4 pounds cost $3 than 1 pound costs p, namely those ratios 4/3 and 1/p have to be equal each other: \[\frac{4}{3} = \frac{1}{p}\]

or, taking the inverse of those ratios, we can write: \[\frac{3}{4} = \frac{p}{1}\]
