An equation which shows two equivalent ratios They help us to find relationships in the real world which are similar

Method 1 -- Scale Factor Method 2 -- Cross Products

Step 1 – Setup the Problem Julian is the best cake baker in Richmond. To make a cake, he uses 1 egg for every 2 cups of flour. If the recipe calls for 10 cups of flour, how many eggs does he need? eggs1X flour 2 10 RatioItem

Step 2 – Find number (scale factor) that you can multiply by to get from side with two numbers to side with variable. eggs1X flour 210

Step 2 – Find number (scale factor) that you can multiply by to get from side with two numbers to side with variable. eggs1X flour 210 x5

eggs1X flour 210 x5 Step 3 – Multiple to find the answer 2 x 5 = 10 and 1 x 5 = 5; therefore, X = 5

Step 1 – Setup the Problem Tom is driving to New York. He travels 70 miles every 2 hours. If the trip takes 8 hours, how many miles will he travel? Miles70X Hours28 Ratio

Step 2 – Multiple numbers from top left to bottom right Miles70X Hours28 70 8 = 560

Step 3 - Multiply numbers from top right to bottom left 2 · x = 2x Miles70X Hours28

Step 4 - Write products as an equation Miles70X Hours28 560=2x

Step 5 – Divide by this number to get x by itself 560=2x

Cats Dogs Wendy works at a kennel. There are 3 cats for every 2 dogs. If she takes in 18 cats, how many dogs will she have? Ratio
