Homework Help: Word Problem Question

Posted by kai on Friday, December 16, 2011 at 10:32pm.

I would like to know if I am correct, so far.

The amount P of pollution varies directly with the population N of people. City A has population of 494,400 and produces 260,000 tons of pollutants. Find how many tons of pollution we should expect City B to produce if population is 344,000. Do not round until final answer. Round to nearest ton.

494,000/260,000=344,000/x
