b. Is the number of hot dogs per package proportional to the number of buns per package? Explain.

if you have p packages of each,
d = 8p
b = 10p
The number of dogs (d) is proportional to the number of packages. p = d/8.
d/b = 8/10 = 4/5
So, the number of dogs per package is proportional to the number of buns per package.
