For Problems 45-56, set up an algebraic equation and solve each problem. (Objective 3)An inheritance of $300, 000 is to be divided between a son and the local heart fund in the ratio of 3 to 1. How much money will the son receive? To determine To Find: The amount receives by the son. Explanation Concept: The comparison of the two numbers by division, we can write in the form of the ratio a to b as ab.The equality statement between the two ratios is known as a proportion. Therefore if ab and pq are two same ratios, the proportion ratio can be formed ab=pq(b0,q0). This property can be solved as follows. ab=pq, (b0,q0) Multiply bq on both sides. bq(ab)=bq(pq)qa=bp Calculation: Consider the son receive money is d in dollars then the local heart receives money becomes ($300,000d)
