The ratio of Isabella’s money to Shane’s money is 3:11 Isabella has $33. We can make a proportion to solve for how much money Shane has. A proportion is two ratios that are set equal to each other. Let’s call Shane’s money ‘S’ We get this proportion: 3/11 = 33/x If we cross multiply we get: (33) * (11) = (3) * (x) Simplifying it, we get: 363 = (3) * (x) Divide both sides by 3, we get: x = 121 However, the question asks how much money they have together. Isabella + Shane = Total 33 + 121 = $154 They have $154 together.
