## anonymous one year ago Set up and solve a proportion for the following application problem. if 5 pounds of grass seed cover 467 square feet, how many pounds are needed for 5604 square feet?

1. anonymous

$$5604=4\cdot1401=4\cdot3\cdot467$$

2. anonymous

so $$\dfrac5{467}=\dfrac{x}{5604}=\dfrac{x}{5\cdot12}\cdot\dfrac5{467}$$

3. anonymous

so $$x=5\cdot12=60$$
