6. Delia was paid $35 for 5 h of babysitting.

How much should she receive for 3 h?

Use a unit rate to find the answer.

How much should she receive for 3 h?

Use a unit rate to find the answer.

So the rate would be $21/3h

12. Set up a proportion for each situation

using a variable. Do not find the answer.

a) Walter makes his own oil and vinegar

dressing. His recipe calls for 175 mL

of olive oil and 50 mL of vinegar. What

amount of vinegar does he need to mix

with 300 mL of olive oil?

home runs should he hit if he strikes

out 187 times?

By the time I answered the second question, the alien seem to be getting nervous. It must have visited earth before because it learned to speak in our language. It said "You may have answered 2 questions but you cannot possible finish 3!" I laughed and began to solve the last problem.

Question 3

Two quarters has the same value as ten nickels. What is the values of five quarters in nickels?

There are 25 nickels in the value of 5 quarters.

The alien couldn't believe I answered all the questions. It said " You have answered all the questions but, an alien never loses!" The alien blasted his gun. The laser sliced a tree in half. Next the alien said " BWAHAHAHAHA ! I'm going to blow up your puny planet anyway! It fired the laser at me but, I dodged it. It just barely trimmed off a piece of my hair. Then, I searched my pockets, found a bag of original skittles and said " Go back to your own planet!" I opened the skittles bag, ate a handful, and rainbows came out of my eye sockets! The rainbows hit the alien space ship and it turned into skittles. Another spaceship hovered over my backyard and took the alien back. The aliens last words were " I'll be back to challenge your knowledge in math again!" That's how I saved the earth by using proportion and skittles!

The End.

I hope I did this post right. Sorry the ending didn't have to do too much about math. I got a little carried away with the story.
