Hendrix's proportion post

Ratio-The quantitative relation between two amo
unts showing the number of times one value contains or is contained within the other.
6:9 6 black balls compared to 9 white balls
Rate-Compares two quantities measured in different units
Proportion-A part, share, or number considered in comparative relation to a whole.


5 hours to travel 360 miles is about 72 mph

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 sam
e proportion? The orange juice is 50 ml to start with.
3.What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true?
3/4 = 12/16 or 4/9 = 16/32

1.No because the rich dude took 3 billion away from other people and he only went to jail for 1 year. And the old guy took $100 from a bank and turned himself in.And he went to jail for 15 years.
2.The poor guy is going in jail for 15 years to pay $0.15 per year and the rich guy is in jail for only 1 year and he stole more money.
3. If I were the judge I would've made the old guy go to jail for 1 year and made the rich guy go to jail for how much money he stole.
