### Your First Post and it is about..... proportion

Welcome to your blogs.  Your first post will be a wrap up of your proportion unit.  You need to have a review of all the work you have done.  None of this will be new.  Consider it the first chapter in your exam review!! Yep I said the "E" word EXAM!! It will also remind you of all the fantastic things you can do to make a blog post pop instead of being boring.

• ratio
• rate
• proportion
Good definitions have pictures, words and examples.

Copy these questions into your post.  Answer them using proportion statements.
1. 5 hours to travel 360 miles is about _____mph
2. 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.
What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true?
3/4 = 12/16  or 4/9 = 16/32

Find a video about using proportion and embed it in your post.  Make sure you select the small size of the video.
