  2. Cross multiply and solve for x.

    20/30 : x/36

    Or --
    Since she stopped 2/3 of the shots one week, she must have stopped 2/3 of the shots the next week.

  10. I suggest that after this when you post a question, you also include what you think is the answer. Then we can check you and explain if necessary.

  12. The answer is 24/36

    write in proportion
    20/30=X/36
    cross multiply
    20/30=24/36
