Challenge! Ready? What is the solution to the proportion, 3y8/12= y/5? Show me your work so that I, Lolly, know you are not cheating. THIS IS A PROPORTION; where you cross multiply.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if you multiply both sides by a common denominator... in this case (12*5), you,,, nevermind just do the cross multiply thing 5*(3y8) = 12*y
