Cartos saves aluminum cans to sell to the recycling center. He recently recycled 43 pounds of cars and received $\$23.65$. How many dollars would he get at this rate for recycling 200 pounds of cans?
This is simple proportions
Let's assign variables. Let x = # of dollars Cartos receives
43 pounds/$23.65 = 200 pounds/ $x
The amount of money is multiplied by 200/43
So we have to multiply the number of dollars by that
and we get 110 dollars
