Write and solve an equation using the constant of proportionality to answer each question.The ratio between the number of children (c) on a field trip and number of teachers (t) on the trips is 14/3. There are 70 children on the field trip.how many teachers are on the trip?

Accepted Solution

Answer:15 teachersStep-by-step explanation:Given:number of children is cnumber of teachers is t[tex]\frac{c}{t}[/tex] = [tex]\frac{14}{3}[/tex] (rearrange)t = [tex]\frac{3}{14}[/tex] x CWhen C = 70, t = [tex]\frac{3}{14}[/tex] x 70t = 15 teachers
