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
