### Directly proportional division

A direct proportional division consists of dividing one number in parts, directly proportional. The higher the proportion, the greater the part.

For example: The division of household expenses in proportion to the earnings of participants:

Monthly costs = $1,500.00; Net income of the participants: A = $1,500.00; B = $1,000.00; C = $500.00;

N = Amount for the division = 1500;

Proportions (X): a = 1500; b = 1000; C = 500;

Solution:

Participants: A = $750.00; B = $500.00; C = $250.00.
