Kim's Proportion Post

Task 1


  • Comparative value of two or more amounts.
  • May be written as 1:2 or a fraction


  • Its a ratio that compares quantities measured in different units.


  • The equality of two ratios, written as an equation.
  • also known as part to whole comparison.

Task 2

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.

Task 3

What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true?
3/4 = 12/16 or 4/9 = 16/32

Task 4

Task 5

Does this seem fair?


With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above. Does it seem just and fair? Why have you made this choice?

No, because the homeless guys just stole $100 while the Ex- Mortgage dude has $3b.

The Ex-mortgage should be in prison for 15 years than the homeless guy

What would you have done if you were the judge?

The homeless guy will be in the community center helping there for a year or 2.

I would also thank him for honest. And for the Ex-mortgage dude, I will sentence him in prison for 20 years.

Hello Kim! Well done on your job post. The definitions helped me a lot. The pictures are great, it shows the relationship between your definitions. I think you did all of the task well but your post would've been better if you change some font size and color. I also agreed with your opinion for task 5. Anyway, good job!
