False.

#### Work Step by Step

$\frac{6}{14} = \frac{18}{45}$ We need to find this proportion is True or False. First we need to convert both sides into lowest terms i.e. $\frac{6}{14} = \frac{6\div2}{14\div2} = \frac{3}{7}$ $\frac{18}{45} = \frac{18\div9}{45\div9} = \frac{2}{5}$ Now, As $\frac{3}{7} \ne \frac{2}{5}$, the given proportion is False.
