    Answer:

    75

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Set up a proportion

    15/25 = x/126                  Cross Multiply

    25x = 15 *126                  Divide by 25. Combine terms on the right

    x = 1890 / 25                  

    x = 75.6                           Now we have to make a decision

    What do we do about the 0.6?

    Normally you would round to 76. But what is 0.6 of a shirt? We should round down.
