Which of the following is …

When looking at our label, we conceive apart A. That there are 240 milligrams of sodium in one serving of chips, and for part B that is 12% of our daily value. To answer Part C, we're going to set up a proportion based on what we're given. We know that 240 milligrams is 12% other daily value. That's information they gave us. Well, I want to know what amount of milligrams would be 100% of our daily value. So now we have a proportion and we can cross multiply 240 times. 100 is 24,000. 12 times X is 12 x. Next step is to divide both sides by 12. To get expert itself, 24,000 divided by 12 is 2000 so 2000 milligrams of sodium would be 100% of the daily value, so that would be them out there. Considering healthy. We can also check our work here. If we divide 240 by 2000 we will get this 12% which is the same thing is 12 over 100. That's how we know her answer is correct.
