**Solve the proportion**

**$\frac{3}{4}=\frac{y}{24}.$**

The solution of the given proportion is $y=18$.

The given proportion is $\frac{3}{4}=\frac{y}{24}.$

We have to solve the proportion$\frac{3}{4}=\frac{y}{24}.$

Solve the given proportion.

$\begin{array}{c}\frac{3}{4}=\frac{y}{24}\\ \frac{3}{4}\cdot 24=\frac{y}{24}\cdot 24\text{}\left[\text{multiply each side by 24}\right]\\ \frac{72}{4}=y\text{}\left[\text{simplify}\right]\\ y=18\text{}\left[\text{divide}\right]\end{array}$

So, the solution is$y=18$.
