**Solve the proportion**

**$\frac{b}{5}=\frac{28}{35}$.**

The solution of the given proportion is $b=4$.

The given proportion is$\frac{b}{5}=\frac{28}{35}.$

We have to solve the proportion$\frac{b}{5}=\frac{28}{35}.$

Solve the given proportion.

$\begin{array}{c}\frac{b}{5}=\frac{28}{35}\\ \frac{b}{5}\cdot 5=\frac{28}{35}\cdot 5\text{}\left[\text{multiply each side by 5}\right]\\ b=\frac{140}{35}\text{}\left[\text{simplify}\right]\\ b=4\text{}\left[\text{divide}\right]\end{array}$

So, the solution is $b=4$.
