**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, September 28, 2008 at 9:53pmYour question doesn't make any sense. If you can use a proportion to solve any ratio problem, then there can't be any ratio problems that can't be solved by a proportion.

**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, September 28, 2008 at 10:00pmI'd answer yes, that a proportion can be used to solve any ratio problem. There are no ratio problems that can't be solved by a proportion.
