### How I stopped an Alien Invasion using Proportion

I was flying a kite at the park when a big UFO came and crashed in the park.
A alien came out of the UFO and was looking at the damages to his ship,
He turn and looked at me with an evil glare then said answer 3 proportion questions
Or your planet will be doomed, so i had to answer them and quickly so these are the proportion questions the alien forced me to answer.

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

The value of 5 quarters nickles is 25 nickles witch equals \$1.25.

The second question he forced me to answer is:

Delia was paid \$35 for babysitting for 5 hours
How much should she receive for 3 hours?

She will receive 21 dollars for 3 hours of babysitting.

The last question he forced me to answer is:

Last night 30cm of snow fell in 6 h.
If it continues snowing at the same rate, how long will it take for 45m of snow o fall?
Determine the answer in two different ways.

A)

There will be 45 cm of snow in 9 hours.

B)

After i was done all the proportion questions he was pleased to see what i did and he left
are planet and went back to his using his friend that came and picked him up
in a UFO and they were gone. so i went back home and went to bed after a long day of proportion. :)
