1
+ Lesson 6-8: Cross Multiplication Objective: We will learn to use cross multiplication to solve a proportion. We will use cross multiplication to check whether two ratios form a proportion.

2
+ Cross multiplication, in a proportion, is the product of one numerator and the other denominator. Property of Cross Products: If two ratios form a proportion, the cross products are equal. If 2 ratios have equal cross products, they form a proportion. Example 1: Decide whether each pair of ratios forms a proportion. You have to multiply the numerator with the denominator of the other fraction; and vice versa. 105 = =105 3×35 = 5 × = 105 If the two products are equal, they form a proportion. When the cross products are not equal, the ratios do not form a proportion. v

3
+ How to Solve a Proportion: For example : 4 = H Steps: ×H = 4× Write the cross products. 7H = Multiply 7 H = To find the value of the variable, undo the multiplication by dividing to both sides. H = Divide (You have to think: The opposite of multiplication is division, so I have to divide the number that is with the variable and do the same for both sides of the problem. Then I cancel the opposites, and bring down what I have left. ) When solving a proportion you must cross multiply, then find the missing variable.

4
+ Your Example : Solve the proportion. 2 = 3 4 N

5
+ Homework: Textbook Pg. 311 #s 7-10 and (Hint: In the first group answer yes or no, but you must show your work. In the second set of problems you must find the value of the variable by cross multiplying. )
