Part 1 Define

Ratio: A comparison of 2 quantities that have the same unit of measure 
Footballs to all the balls is 3:5

Rate: Compares 2 quantities measured in different units

Example: Usain Bolt travels 100 mt in 9 seconds is 100mt/9sec

Proportion: Equation that tells 2 ratios are equal

Part 2 Answer using proportion statements 

1. 5 hours to travel 360 km is about       km/h

 2. Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar she earns. Emma earned 75 dollars last week. How much money did she save last week. She saved 21$

2.With what do you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above Does it seem just and fair?
3.Why you made this choice?
4.What would you have done if you were the judge?
