One day in math class, our teacher told us to solve these three proportional problems. Nobody would listen and solve the problems so our teacher got mad. All of a sudden, he turned into this freakish alien! He threatened to vanish us all if we didn't solve the three problems. So these were the questions, and how I solved them.
1. Delia was paid $35 for 5 hours of babysitting . How much should she receive for 3 hours?
Delia will receive $21 for babysitting in 3 hours.
2. 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 which equals $1.25.
3. 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.
There will be 45 cm of snow in 9 hours.
After I solved these problems my teacher turned back to normal, and my whole class was safe.
THE END. :)
