for every 8cds sold, there were 12 dvds sold. a combined total of 70 cds and dvds were sold. how many cds were sold that day? write a proportion to show the relationship and solve it to find the number so cds sold

  • math -

    d = (12/8) c = (3/2) c
    or
    d/c = 3/2

    d + c = 70 so d = 70 -c
    so
    (70 -c )/c = 3/2
    70 - c = 3 c / 2
    140 - 2 c = 3 c
    5 c = 140
    c = 28
