## Use cross multiplication for direct proportion:

1 c.c. : 2.7 grams

x c.c. : 5.4 grams

x=5.4*1/2.7=2 cc

aluminum weighs 2.7 grams. If a piece of aluminum

foil weighs 5.4 grams, find the volume of the aluminum

foil.

Let's assume the volume of the aluminum foil is V cubic centimeters.

Given:

Weight of aluminum foil = 5.4 grams

Weight of 1 cubic centimeter of aluminum = 2.7 grams

Using the proportion:

Weight of aluminum foil / Weight of 1 cubic centimeter of aluminum = Volume of aluminum foil / 1 cubic centimeter

Substituting the values we have:

5.4 grams / 2.7 grams = V cubic centimeters / 1 cubic centimeter

Simplifying the equation:

2 = V / 1

Solving for V:

V = 2 cubic centimeters

Therefore, the volume of the aluminum foil is 2 cubic centimeters.
