Solution: Here the given proportion is 2 : y = 10 : 3.

It can be expressed as a fraction in the form.

2 / y = 10 / 3

Now multiply both sides of the equation by y.

This gives 2 = 10 y /3.

Now multiply both sides of the equation by 3.

This gives 10 y = 6.

Now divide both sides of the equation by 10.

So y = 6 / 10.

Hence the value of y for the given proportion = 3 / 5.

Solution: Here the given proportion is x : 5 = 1 :15.

It can be expressed as a fraction in the form.

This gives, x / 5 = 1 / 15

Now multiply both sides of the equation by 5.

This gives 5(x/ 5) = (1 / 15) (5).

x = 1 / 3.

Hence the value of x for the given proportion is= 1/3.
