Problem of the Day
A carpenter can build one doghouse in one day. How many doghouses can 12 carpenters build in 20 days? 240 Slide 4:
Learn to write and solve proportions. Slide 5:
Vocabulary proportion Slide 6:
A proportion is an equation that shows two equivalent ratios. Read the proportion = as “two is to
one as four is to two.” Reading Math Slide 7:
Additional Example 1: Modeling Proportions
Write a proportion for the model. = First write the ratio of hearts to stars. Next separate the hearts and stars into two equal groups. Slide 8:
Additional Example 1 Continued
Now write the ratio of hearts to stars in each group. = A proportion shown by the model is = . Slide 9:
Check It Out: Example 1
Write a proportion for the model. = First write the ratio of faces to moons. Next separate the faces and moons into two equal groups. Slide 10:
Check It Out: Example 1 Continued
Now write the ratio of faces to moons in each group. = A proportion shown by the model is = . Slide 11:
8 • 2 = 4 • 4 5 • 9 = 3 • 15 16 = 16 45 = 45 6 • 3 = 9 • 2 18 = 18 7 • 2 = 14 • 1 14 = 14 Slide 12:
Additional Example 2: Using Cross Products to Complete Proportions
Find the missing value in the proportion. Find the cross products. 6 • n = 5 • 18 The cross products are equal. 6n = 90 n is multiplied by 6. = Divide both sides by 6 to undo the multiplication. n = 15 Slide 13:
Check It Out: Example 2
Find the missing value in the proportion. Find the cross products. 5 • n = 3 • 15 The cross products are equal. 5n = 45 n is multiplied by 5. = Divide both sides by 5 to undo the multiplication. n = 9 Slide 14:
Additional Example 3: Measurement Application
According to the label, 1 tablespoon of plant fertilizer should be used per 6 gallons of water. How many tablespoons of fertilizer would you use for 4 gallons of water? = Let f be the amount of fertilizer for 4 gallons of water. = Write a proportion. 6 • f = 1 • 4 The cross products are equal. Slide 15:
In a proportion, the units must be in the same order in both ratios. Caution! = = or Slide 16:
Additional Example 3 Continued f is multiplied by 6. Divide both sides by 6 to undo the multiplication. Write your answer in simplest form. 6f = 4 = f = tbsp You would use tbsp of fertilizer for 4 gallons of water. Slide 17:
Check It Out: Example 3
According to the label, 3 tablespoons of plant fertilizer should be used per 9 gallons of water. How many tablespoons of fertilizer would you use for 2 gallons of water? = Let f be the amount of fertilizer for 2 gallons of water. = Write a proportion. 9 • f = 3 • 2 The cross products are equal. Slide 18:
Check It Out: Example 3 Continued f is multiplied by 9. Divide both side by 9 to undo the multiplication. Write your answer in simplest form. 9f = 6 = f = tbsp You would use tbsp of fertilizer for 2 gallons of water. Slide 19:
