This is the proportion $\frac{ 10 }{ 129,200,000 }=\frac{ 8 }{ ? }$ This is how to solve it. One of the most popular ways is by cross multiplying. So first 8 x 129,200,000 8 x 129,200,000 = 1,033,600,000 Next divide your answer by 10 1,033,600,000/10 = 103,360,000 So the answer is 103,360,000 households had remotes.

SO IT WOULD BE 8/103,360,000 OR JUST 103,360,000
