6 3/4 : x = 7 : 22

7x = 148.5

x = 21.21 inches

Go ahead and do the same thing for the circumference in centimeters -- remembering that the answer will be a little less than 56.

We'll be glad to check your answer.

C / 6.75 = 22in / 7, C = 6.75*22/7 =21in

C / 6.75 = 56 / 7, C = 6.75*56/7 = 54cm
