There are 18 green blocks in a bag THere are 3 white blocks for every 2 green blocks Which proportion can be used to find w, the total number of white blocks in the bag?
A.18/w=3/2
B.18/w=2/3
C.3/18=2/w
D.2/3=w/18
How do I solve

  • Math -

    w = (3/2)g
    but g = 18
    so
    w = (3/2)(18)
    or
    (2/3) w = 18
    or
    18/w = 2/3 which is B
