Law of constant proportions

Chemistry Level 1

When 1.375 g of cupric oxide is reduced on heating in a current of hydrogen, the weight of copper remaining is 1.098 g. In another experiment, 1.179 g of copper is dissolved in nitric acid and the resulting copper nitrate is converted into cupric oxide by ignition. The weight of cupric oxide formed is 1.476 g.

Does this situation verify law of constant proportions?
