(2x+4)/5=30/25 (25)(2x+4)=(5)(30) ------------- 25*(2x+4) is 50x + 100, not 29. You would have gotten it right, even tho you went the long way around, except for that. ------------------------- 50x+29=150 50x+29-29=150-29 50x=121 (50x)/50=(121)/50 x=2.42 ------------------ No. (2x+4)/5=30/25 = 6/5 2x+4 = 6 2x = 2 x = 1 I don't know why you call it a "proportion", it's an equation. Answer by oscargut(900)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(2x+4)/5=30/25 (25)(2x+4)=(5)(30) (good) 50x+29=150 ( 25*4 =100 ) 50x+100=150 50x = 150-100 50x=50 x=1
