#### Question

Suppose 2 kg of sugar contains 9 × 106 crystals.

How many sugar crystals are there in (1) 5 kg of sugar? (2) 1.2 kg of sugar?

#### Solution

1) Let the number of sugar crystals in 5 kg of sugar be x.

The given information in the form of a table is as follows.

 Amount of sugar (in kg) 2 5 Number of crystals 9 × 106 x

The amount of sugar and the number of crystals it contains are directly proportional to each other. Therefore, we obtain

2/(9xx10^6) = 5/x

x = (5xx9xxxx10^6)/2 = 2.25 xx 10^7

Hence, the number of sugar crystals is 2.25 × 107

2) Let the number of sugar crystals in 1.2 kg of sugar be y. The given information in the form of a table is as follows.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
