Textbook Problem

Use ratio and proportion to solve the following business situations.

If a bulk order of 1,600 blouses costs $41,600, how much would 2,000 blouses cost?

To determine

**To calculate:** The cost of

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The cost of

**Formula used:**

Cross multiplication method:

To solve the proportional problem by using cross multiplication, follow the steps as mentioned below.

Step 1: Represent the unknowns by a letter.

Step 2: Set the proportion with one ratio, expressed as a fraction on both side of the equal sign.

Step 3: Multiply numerator of the left side ratio with the denominatior of right side ratio and place the product on one side of the equal sign.

Step 4: Multiply denominatior of the left side ratio with the nominatior of right side ratio and place the product on other side of the equal sign.

The step 3 and 4 together is called as cross multiplication.

Step5: Solve for the unknown value.

**Calculation:**

Consider the cost of

Suppose that *X* be the cost of

The proportion can be written as

Apply cross multiplication, this gives,

Or, it can be written as:

This equation represents that
