Homework Help: ratios

Posted by tish on Thursday, April 21, 2011 at 6:07pm.

Martha is flying to England for a visit. She intends to exchange her U.S. dollars for English pounds. The exchange rate allows 60 pounds for every 100 U.S. dollars. How many pounds will she get if she exchanges $450 U.S. dollars for pounds?

60:x = 100:450 ( this is how I was trying to work this out but again, I don't the answer in my book ).

Help greatly appreciated.

Thanks
