Each time the distance can be found by multiplying by 4 (the between relationship) – foundational to writing the equations. Also note the relationships between the different rows which is the within relationship.x3cc: Microsoft.com

22Solution Strategies Strategy Description Build-up strategy Students use the ratio to build up to the unknown quantity.Unit-rate strategyStudents identify the unit rate and then use it to solve the problem.Factor-of-change strategyStudents use a “times as many strategy.Fraction strategyStudents use the concept of equivalent fractions to find the missing part.Ratio TablesStudents set up a table to compare the quantities.Cross multiplication algorithmStudents set up a proportion (equivalence of two ratios), find the cross products, and solve by using division.While the cross-product algorithm is efficient, it has little meaning. In fact, it is impossible to explain why one would want to find the product of contrasting elements from two different rate pairs. This algorithm should not be introduced until 7th grade. According to the IES What Works Clearinghouse:Developing Effective Fractions Instruction for Kindergarten Though 8th Grade, a need for using the cross-product algorithm should be used based on the numbers in the problem. Either way, students should understand why it works.
