1. As a playgroup worker, if I increase the amount of apple juice I am serving at the playgroup from 25 ml to 100 ml, how much should I increase the the orange juice to, to keep the quantities in the same proportion? The orange juice is 50 ml to start with.

2. AJ/OJ 25ml/50ml 1ooml/200ml

3. What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true?

1.Does this seem fair?

No i don't think this is far.

2.With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above. Does it seem just and fair? Why have you made this choice?

No this is not far the guy who took 3billion dallors shouldn't have only got 3 years like come on judge. Yes it was wrong for the home-less person to go and take money from the bank but he only took 1! \$100 bill and then at the same time turned himself in. He shouldn't have gotten 15 years in jail but because of 1 \$1oo bill. That to me in sooo unfar.

3.What would you have done if you were the judge?

If i was the judge i would of told the man you got only 3 years that he should be shame of himself and i would of gave him 20 years in jail. For the guy who toke \$100 dallors i would give her 3 months in jail.
