Please help i dont even know how to do this problem!

- Math please help! Im so confused! -
**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at 4:33pmOne way to do this is is by using a proportion. Cross multiply and solve for x.

1/130 = x/2600

130x = 2600

x = 2600 / 130

x = 20

**DrBob222**, Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at 4:36pmThis is just a proportion problem.

2600 people x (1 farmer/130 people) = ? farmers. See how the units cancel. people cancels people; you have converted people to farmers.
