1. One way to solve these problems is to find the decimal equivalent of each fraction.

24/96 = 0.25
27/108 = 0.25
These fractions form a proportion.

You can also use cross products

15/40 = 35/90
1350 = 1400 -- Nope! This is not a proportion.

2. gee - why not follow the hints? Use cross products:

if

a/b = c/d, then ad = bc

So, for the first, try each pair:

1. 24/96 , 27/108 ? 24*108 = 96*27 YES
2. 17/102 , 12/70 ? 17*70 = 102*12 NO
3. 21/51 , 35/85 ? 21*85 = 51*35 YES
4. 45/75 , 63/105 ? 45*105 = 75*63 YES

Try the others in the same way. If you get stuck, come back and show how far you got.
