Calculate the unknown term in the following proportions:






Problem 2
Anne buys 5 pounds of potatoes at the market. If 2 pounds cost $0.80, how
much will Anne pay?

Problem 4 The legs of a right triangle measure 24 m and 10 m and its hypotenuse is 26 m. the total price decreases.5 m casts a shadow of 0. the length of the shadow also decreases. Problem 3 Calculate the height of a building that casts a shadow of 6. a pole with a height of 4.90 m. the total price increases and when the weight decreases. The height and the length of the shadow are directly proportional because as the height increases. What is the length of the legs of a similar triangle whose hypotenuse is 52 m? .5 meters at the same time.The weight and the price are directly proportional because when the weight increases. so does the shadows length and as the height decreases.

Problem 5 Two wheels are connected by a transmitter belt. so does the length of the legs and if the length of the hypotenuse decreases. how many turns will the second have completed? The length of the radius and the number of turns are inversely proportional because the larger the radius is. When the first has reached 300 turns. If the hypotenuse inceases. . the legs decrease aswell.The length of legs are directly proportional to the length of the hypotenuse in the similar triangle. the fewer times the wheel will complete a rotation and the smaller the radius is. 75 cm. the more frequently the wheel will complete a rotation. The first has a radius of 25 cm and the second.

5 . If the money is withdrawn. how much will each individual receive if their earnings are directly proportional to the capital orginally contributed? The amount invested is directly proportional to the amount gained because the more money originally invested translates into a higher return and the less money orginally invested translates into a lower return.5 = 92.000 which is together invested into a stock. What is percentage of students who did not remain at the school? Problem 8 When purchasing a vehicle priced at $8.500 and $9. 600 attend a field trip.5%. How much will the final cost of the vehicle be? 100 − 7. Problem 7 Of the 800 students at a school. $7. the sales clerk awards a discount of 7.Problem 6 Three individuals contribute $5.000. the stock has made $6.800.450 on top of the capital. After a year.

determine the price that the customer paid. Problem 12 What is the price that a retailer has to charge on an item acquired for $180 in order to make a profit of 10%? . how much will the costumer pay? Problem 11 An item is sold for 15% more than it cost the retailer to acquire the item. If it was sold to the retailer for $80. How much will a customer need to pay in total if the tax is 16%? Problem 10 If a monitor is priced at $450 and the store manager awards a discounted of 8%.Problem 9 The price of a computer is $1.200.

000 at a simple interest rate of 5% to become $30.500 Problem 16 .500.000 is deposited into a savings account. 4 months and 20 days it totals $52.000? Problem 15 $45.Problem 13 What is the sale price that a retailer has to put on an article originally priced at $280 to reduce it by 12% for an upcoming sale? Problem 14 How long does it take a principal of $25. 360 + 120 + 20 = 500 days I = 52 500 − 45 000 = $7. Calculate the simple interest rate for this account. After one year.

000 at a simple interest rate of 6%. .Determine the simple interest rate applied to a principal over 20 years if the total interest paid equals the borrowed principal. I = P Problem 17 How long does it take a principal payment to triple at a simple interst rate of 6%? I = 3 · P Problem 18 Find the total amount of simple interest that is paid over a perod of five years on a principal of $ 30.
