    12 bunches … $9

    x bunches … $8

    Now cross multiply.

    9x=12\cdot8\Longrightarrow x=\dfrac{12\cdot8}{9}\approx\boxed{10.67}

    Patrick can buy about 11 (10.67) bunches of bananas.

    Hope this helps.

    Answer:

    x=32/3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    9/12=8/x

    cross product

    12*8=9*x

    96=9x

    x=96/9

    simplify,

    x=32/3
