GOAL: FIND RATIOS AND WRITE AND SOLVE PROPORTIONS Section 3.5 Write Ratios and Proportions
Rate: A function that compares two quantities measured in different units Proportion: An equation that states that two ratios are equivalent
The ratio of two quantities, a and b, where b is not equal to zero, can be written in 3 ways: 1._____ 2._____3._____ a to ba : b
Ex. 1: A person makes 6 long distance calls and 15 local calls. 1a. Find the ration of long distance calls to local calls: 1b. Find the ratio of long distance calls to all calls:
Ex. 2: Ken and Heather are selling tickets to their schools talent show. Ken sold 36 tickets, and Heather sold 44 tickets. Find the specified ratio. 2a.
