## anonymous one year ago Solve the proportion. 6/a = 18/27

Use cross multiplication $\huge~\rm~\frac{ 6 }{ a }=\frac{ 18 }{ 27}$

2. anonymous

divide 18/27 by 3

3. anonymous

When you cross multiply you can find the answer a lot more quicker (in my opinion). (6 times 27) = (a times 18)

4. anonymous

From there you can divide 18 on both sides of the equation to get you answer.
