*Of the balloons recently sold by a party store, 2 were blue and 10 were other colors. Considering this data, how many of the next 18 balloons sold would you expect in be blue*

Assuming a consistent proportion, x is to 18 as 2 is to 10

x 2

––– = –––

18 10

cross multiply 10x = 36

x = **3.6**

You can't have point six of a balloon,

so round this to a whole number, one

way or the other. Convention would

be to round up.
