=
  
20
w

Define the proportion formula:

If 2 proportions are equal:
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

Evaluate and simplfy

w  =  8 * 20
  16

w  =  160
  16








What is the Answer?

w = 10
