### Complete the proportion.8 markers cost \$7. What is the cost of 13 markers?

• A.
• B.
• C.
• D.
• E.

None of these choices.

A.
Explanation
The cost of 13 markers can be found by setting up a proportion. We can write the ratio of the cost of 8 markers to the cost of 13 markers as 8/13. Since we know that 8 markers cost \$7, we can set up the proportion as 8/13 = 7/x, where x is the unknown cost of 13 markers. To solve for x, we can cross-multiply and find that 8x = 91. Dividing both sides by 8, we find that x = 11.375. Therefore, the cost of 13 markers is \$11.375.
