Before Video
When you hear the phrase “10% fruit,” what part of the juice is fruit and what part is water?ANSWER10% is fruit and 90% is water.
15.
ANSWERThere are 10 cats and 30 dogs.
A whole is split into 5 equal parts, and 3 of the parts are shaded.
3 parts are shaded, and 2 parts are not shaded.
After Video
Give an example of a part-to-whole ratio in words and in symbols.ANSWEROrange juice is 2 parts fruit concentrate out of 5 parts total. [ggfrac]2/5[/ggfrac] of the juice is fruit concentrate.
There are 3 pink carnations for every 2 red roses. 3 : 2
[ggfrac]8/40[/ggfrac] are teachers. 8 teachers : 32 students. 32 students : 8 teachers. [ggfrac]32/40[/ggfrac] are students.
10 : 20. 25 : 50. 300 : 600. 1,000 : 2,000. (The goal is to get past multiplying and dividing by 2.)
Use one row of data for the x-coordinates and the other row for the y-coordinates. Place a point for each ratio and draw a line between the points.
