What is a proportion?

A proportion is a fraction of a total amount, and the measures are related using a rule of three. Due to this, relations between variables, either direct or inverse proportional, can be built to find the desired measures in the problem.
We have that:
• A one is worth 1.
• A tenth is worth 0.1.
• A hundredth is worth 0.01.
• A thousandths is worth 0.001.
Hence the weight is given by:
8 x 1 + 13 x 0.1 + 24 x 0.01 + 176 x 0.001 = 9.716 pounds.
