These were the questions:
1. Set up a proportion for each situation.
a) If 10 beans have a mass of 17 g, then 30 beans have a mass of 51 g.
b) There are 13 boys for 15 girls in every classroom at Albany Middle School. If there are 65 boys in the school, then there are 75 girls.
c) On a map, 1 cm represents 25 km. Kendra wants to ride her bike 160 km. This distance is 6.4 cm on the map.
2. Two quarters have the same value as ten nickels. What is the value of five quarters in nickels?
- The value of 25 nickels is 5 quarters which is $1.25.
3. An amusement park, a new thrill ride was introduced. It costs $7.50 for 3 rides on the Wild Slider.
a) What is the Wild Slider's unit rate per ride?
b) At this rate, what would it cost for 18 rides on Wild Slider? Determine the answer two different ways.
After I answered these proportion questions, the aliens left, and I ran back into my house, safe and sound.
