### 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.
To find out how many tens are in a number, we divide it by 10, hence:
• 10020/10 = 1002.
• 20010/10 = 2001.
Tyler’s thinking in incorrect, as dividing both numbers by 10, 20,010 has 2001 tens and 10,020 has 1002 tens.
