Hello i have a question for my homework and i am struggling in solving it i would appreciate it if you can help me on this question
The national union of wheeltappers finds that the cost of transporting its members to a picket line is directly proportional to the number of pickets.
If it costs £55 to transport 20 pickets what will be the cost of transporting 35 pickets?
If the cost was £137.50 how many pickets were transported?
Thank you for all your help:confused:

If it costs £55 to transport 20 pickets what will be the cost of transporting 35 pickets?
put the problem in this form
£55 > 20 pickets
x > 35 pickets
x = (35*55)/20 = £96.25
If the cost was £137.50 how many pickets were transported?
£55 > 20 pickets
£137.5 > x
x = (137.5*20)/55 = 50 pickets
hope that helps
