Tamika’s dad bought a Mustang convertible for 12,000 dollars to celebrate his first job in 1978, which paid him 15,000 dollars a year. If Tamika is to use the same fraction of her salary as her dad to buy a Mustang convertible, which now sells for 32,000 dollars, what will her first job have to pay?

    Use proportions to figure out the solution.

    12,000 32,000
    _______ = _______
    15,000 x

    In this way, you are figuring out the value of x.
    To find x, you must first cross multiply these values.

    12,000 (32,000)
    _______ = _______
    (15,000) x

    Afterward, you would then divide the product by the remaining known value, in this case , 12,000, and that quotient is the value of x!
