    Answer:

    $48

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Since we are given the ratio 3:2 we can use that with the given number to find our missing amount

    first, we divide 72 by 3 to find  what 1/3 will be 72/3 = 24

    Then, we multiply by 2 to find our missing amount 24 * 2 = 48

    Answer:

    $48

    Step-by-step explanation:

    A ratio of 3:2 could be $3 and $2, or any multiple of 3 and 2 such as $6 and $4. Kristen corresponds to $3 and receives $72.

    $72/$3 = x/$2

    3x = 2 * $72

    3x = $144

    x = $48

    Answer: $48
