Part 2!

Part 3!

I choose 3/4 = 12/16

Part 4!

Part 5!

1. Does this seem fair?
No It does not.
2. With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above. Does it seem just and fair?
It isn't fair at all.
3. Why have you made this choice?
It's because the guy stole 3 billion! And it doesn't seem like he's homeless and lives a normal life. While the other man who took \$100 and took it back should get less prison time at least! SInce he gave back the money and he only needed the money for home and shelter.
4. What would you have done if you were the judge?
I would have gave the man who stole 3 billion much more jail time because that's 3 BILLION! One of the biggest frauds. And for the man who stole \$100 but gave it back I would give him about 1 year since he gave it back but still stealing is stealing.
