    Proportion says that two ratios (or fractions) are equal.

    If 380\ cm^3 has a mass of 1710 grams and 532\ cm^3 has unknown mass of x grams, then you can write it as

    380\ cm^3  – 1710 grams,

    532\ cm^3 – x grams.

    Mathematically this means:

    \dfrac{380}{532}=\dfrac{1710}{x}.

    Find x:

    x=\dfrac{532\cdot 1710}{380}=2394 grams.

    Answer: 2394 grams.
