Jamie's Rate Growing Post

1. Ratio - Compares two quantities in the same units.
eg. M&MS: red:blue
2. Rate - Compares two quantities in different units.
eg. $0.99/L

a) A blue whale has 4 kills/day.
b) A blue whale cruises at a speed of 19.3km/hr.
c) A bull moose has 6 bellows/hr.

Trevor: 28km/hr.
Jillian: 28km/hr.
Trevor and Jillian rode their mountain bikes at the same speed.


Today, we wrote down a recipe which serves 4 people. What we had to find out was how much more do we need to add to that recipe to serve 10 people, and 1 person.

To serve 10 people using this recipe, you have to multiply everything by 2.5.
1o people:
1 1/4 lb ground beef
2 1/2 medium onion diced
2 1/2 celery finely sliced
2 1/2 clove of garlic
35 oz can of tomatoes chopped
1 1/4 can of tomato paste
2 1/2 tsp parsley
3 3/4 tsp basil
2 1/2 tsp oregano
2 1/2 tsp sugar
1 1/4 tsp Worchestershire Sauce
1 1/4 tsp seasoning salt
2 1/2 bay leaf

To serve 1 person with this recipe, you have to divide the real recipe by 4.
1 person:
1/8 lb ground beef
1/4 medium onion diced
1/4 celery finely sliced
1/4 clove of garlic
3.5 oz can of tomatoes chopped
1/8 can of tomato paste
1/4 tsp of parsley0
.375/7.5ml tsp of basil
1/4 tsp of oregano
1/4 tsp of sugar
1/8 tsp of Worchestershire Sauce
1/8 tsp of seasoning salt
1/4 bay leaf
