**Proportionately**, if they do half and half of **50%** and **80%** of the two bags, <u>Bob is correct</u>.

<h3>What is a proportion?</h3>

A **proportion** is a mathematical measure that compares two variables or numbers.

**Proportions** can be stated in percentages or ratios, as decimals or fractions.

<h3>Data and Calculations:</h3>

Content of 16-ounce bag of nuts = 60% chocolate-covered nuts

Content of first bag = 50/50 plain and chocolate-covered nuts

Content of second bag = 80% chocolate-covered nuts

A mixture of half of 50% bag with half of 80% bag will result in **65%** (50% + 80%)/2.

Thus, since the promise for each **16-ounce bag** is for at least **60%** chocolate-covered nuts, <u>Bob is correct</u>.
