(5,2) means 5 pounds of cabbage costs $2. so to get 1 pound you divide the weight of cabbage by 5. then to get the price of 1 pound you divide the price by 5.

5 pounds divided by 5 = 1 pound. $2 divided by 5 = $0.4

we can write the subsequent proportion: \[\Large 2:5 = p:1\] p is the unit price

Hint: if 5 pounds of cabbage cost 2 dollars, then 1 pound of cabbage costs 2/5 dollars
horsegal244
  • horsegal244
ok
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
so we can write this formula: \[p = \frac{2}{5}\]
horsegal244
  • horsegal244
ok
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
now, if we apply the fundamental property to this proportion: \[2:5 = p:1\] we get: \[5p = 2\]

  • horsegal244
ok
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
next I divide both sides of that last formula, by 5, so I can write: |dw:1432753316992:dw|
horsegal244
  • horsegal244
ok
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
which is the same equation which I wrote before, at the beginning. So we can conclude, that the proportion: \[2:5 = p:1\] is the right proportion

  • horsegal244
ok So now how would i write it in essay form
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
a possible statement is: "since 5 pounds of cabbage cost 2 dollars, then 1 pound of cabbage costs 2/5 of dollars, or 40 cent"
