 # 1/2 = 4/2z

## Enter proportion values below:

 ---------- =<≤>≥ ----------

 1 2
 =
 4 2z

## Define the proportion formula:

If 2 proportions are equal to each other, then we can cross multiply to get:
 Numerator 1 Denominator 1
 =
 Numerator 2 Denominator 2

Numerator 1 * Denominator 2 = Denominator 1 * Numerator 2

## Solving for Denominator 2 we get:

 Denominator 2  = Denominator 1 * Numerator 2 Numerator 1

## Evaluating and simplfying using your input values we get:

 2z  = 2 * 4 1

 2z  = 8 1

2z  =  8

## Divide each side by 2

 2z 2
 =
 8 2

z = 4

z = 4

### How does the Proportion Calculator work?

1) Calculates the missing link of 2 equivalent proportions or ratios.
2) Also determines if two numerical proportions that you entered such as 1/10=6/12 are equivalent or not equivalent. Note: You can use all allowable operators such as =,<,≤,>,≥
This calculator has 4 inputs.
