**Ms. Sue**, Monday, June 30, 2008 at 9:42pmFor the first problem, you could use the price of one can of soda from a machine and compare it with a six-pack of the same size of cans of soda. Which is the better buy?

I've used ratios and proportions for many years because I never learned a couple of basic math procedures. For instance, if I need to know what percent of 250 equals 50, I set it up as a proportion.

50/250 = x/100
