Ashley's Proportion Post

--------------------------

2) Rate- Rate is a ratio that compares two amounts of different units.

3) Proportion-A proportion is an equation with a ratio on each side.

--------------------------
1. 5 hours to travel 360 miles is about 72 mph.
2. As a playgroup worker, if I increase the amount of apple juice I am serving at the playgroup from 25 ml to 100 ml, how much should I increase the the orange juice to, to keep the quantities in the same proportion? The orange juice is 50 ml to start with.
--------------------------
3/4 = 12/16 or 4/9 = 16/32
3/4=12/16 is true because 3 times 16 is 48 and 4 times 16 is 48.

--------------------------

Does this seem fair? No because this homeless dude only stole \$100 and turned himself in and has to stay in prison for 15 years. The rich guy stole 30 million dollars and has to stay in prison for ONLY 1 year, or something like that.
