The problem states that "5 to 8 is as 15 to w." I'm having some trouble solving this because I am unsure of what the problem is asking me to do. Some help would be appreciated. Thank you! :)

  • Math -

    The problem is a proportion and is asking you to find the value of w.

    5/8 = 15/w

    Cross multiply and solve for w

    5/8 = 15/w

    5w = 120

    w = 24

    5 is to 8 as 15 is to 24
