At a plant that manufactures soup cans, 5,000 pounds of aluminium is needed to produce 3,600 soup cans. How many pounds of aluminum are needed to produce 450 soup cans?

Pretty heavy soup cans....

5000# is to 3600 cans as x # is to 450 cans

 

5000# / 3600 cans = x # / 450 cans    Multiply both sides by 450 cans

5000/3600 x 450 = x # = 625 #
