### Rose's Proportion Post

Ratio- a relationship between two quantities.

Rate compares two quantities measured in different units

Proportion is an equation which states that ratios or fractions are equal.

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 12
-----=------- True
4 16

4 16
-----=----- False
9 32

1. Does this seem fair? No.

2.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?

I think it's not fair because the rich guy stole \$3 billion and he just need to spend a 3 years. While, the homeless guy will spent time in jail for 15 years even though he just stole \$100 and he turned himself in.

3.What would you have done if you were the judge?

If I were the judge, I will give the homeless man 1 year in the prison or give him community work every day for 2 months.
