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.

3/4 = 12/16 or 4/9 = 16/32

Does this seem fair?

• THIS IS NOT FAIR AT ALL

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?

• Its doesn't seem fair because they homeless guys went to go rob a bank because he was hungry and he wanted food and he only took \$100. Plus he gave himself into the police because he knew better and he has to spend 15 years in jail. This CEO took 3 billion dollars and only has to spend 3 years in jail this is so unfair and so racist any person can tell this is so unfair and not right.

What would you have done if you were the judge?

• If i was the judge i wouldn't be all racist i would see why the homeless guy took the money. But after the fact he gave it back. and now your going to give him 15 years in jail for \$100 dollars like how dumb can you be.
