proportion post

part 1

ratio ; is a relationship between two numbers of the same kind.

rate: a comparison of two quantities that measure in different units

proportion: an equation that says that two ratios or two rates are equal

part 2   

1. 5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about 72 km/h.

2.  Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns.  Emma earned $75 last week.  How much money did Emma save last week? she saved $2.67

part 3

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

4/9 is not equivalent 
3/4 is equivalent     

part 5

1. no this is not fair
2. 15 x 12months=180months divide $100= .55 a months
      3 000 000 000.00 divide 40= 7,500,000months

this does not seem fair 

if i was the judge i would of given the homeless guy like a night in jail and the other guy that stole 3  billion would of given him 15 years in jail.
