Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(5,3)...x = 5 and y = 3 proportions are nothing but equivalent fractions. pounds of cabbage 5  =  cost of cabbage 3 A. 5/3 = 1/x  5 lbs of cabbage to $3 = 1 lb of cabbage to $x this is your proportion....now we cross multiply to solve for x. (5)(x) = (3)(1) 5x = 3 x = 3/5 x = 0.6 so 1 lb of cabbage costs 0.60 cents B. (10,6)  this means 10 lbs of cabbage costs $6
