Veronica’s trail-mix package says there are 7 peanuts for every 3 cashews. Casey’s trail-
mix package says there are 63 peanuts and 27 cashews. Are these ratios proportional?
If not, how many peanuts should there have been to make it proportional?


  1. Answer:
    Yes, they are proportional.
    Step-by-step explanation:
    The ratio for Veronica’s trail mix is 3:7
    The ratio for Casey’s trail mix is 27:63 <— Simplify this number
    27:63 simplified is 3:7, which means these ratios are proportional.
    hope this helps 🙂
