In this lesson on Applications of Proportions, the professor teaches how to set up and use proportions to solve real-world problems. Examples include calculating how far a car travels in a given time at a certain speed, finding out the distance between two cities on a map using a scale, and calculating how much a salesman will be paid for the number of miles traveled. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to apply proportions to solve similar problems.
Learn how to set up and use proportions in some real-world application problems.
