ERHS Math Geometry

## Ratio and Proportion

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

A ratio is a comparison by division of two quantities that have the same units of measurement

The ratio of two numbers, a and b, where b is not zero, is the number a/b

e.g. AB = 4 cm and CD = 5 cm

AB 4 cm 4

CD 5 cm 5

* A ratio has no units of measurement

## Definition of Ratio

or 4 to 5 or 4 : 5

=

=

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

Since a ratio, like a fraction, is a comparison of two numbers by division, a ratio can be simplified by dividing each term of the ratio by a common factor

e.g. AB = 20 cm and CD = 5 cm

AB 20 cm 4

CD 5 cm 1

* A ratio is in simplest form (or lowest terms) when the terms of the ratio have no common factor greater than 1

## Definition of Ratio

or 4 to 1 or 4 : 1

=

=

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

A ratio can also be used to express the relationship among three or more numbers

e.g. the measures of the angles of a triangle are 45, 60, and 75, the ratio of these measures can be written as

45 : 60 : 75 or, in lowest terms,

?

## Definition of Ratio

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

A ratio can also be used to express the relationship among three or more numbers

e.g. the measures of the angles of a triangle are 45, 60, and 75, the ratio of these measures can be written as

45 : 60 : 75 or, in lowest terms,

3 : 4 : 5

## Definition of Ratio

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

If the lengths of the sides of a triangle are in the ratio 3 : 3 : 4, and the perimeter of the triangle is 120 cm, Find the lengths of the sides

## Ratio Example

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

If the lengths of the sides of a triangle are in the ratio 3 : 3 : 4, and the perimeter of the triangle is 120 cm, Find the lengths of the sides

x: the greatest common factor

three sides: 3x, 3x, and 4x

3x + 3x + 4x = 120

10x = 120, x = 12

The measures of the sides: 3(12), 3(12), and 4(12) or 36 cm, 36 cm, and 48 cm

## Ratio Example

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

A rate is a comparison by division of two quantities that have different units of measurement

e.g. A UFO moves 400 m in 2 seconds

the rate of distance per second (speed) is

distance 400 m

time 2 s

* A rate has unit of measurement

## Definition of Rate

200 m/s

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

A proportion is a statement that two ratios are equal. It can be read as “a is to b as c is to d”

a c

b d

* When three or more ratios are equal, we can write and extended proportion

a ce g

b df h

## Definition of Proportion

=

or a : b = c : d

=

=

=

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

A proportion a : b = c : d

a : b = c : d

## Definition of Extremes and Means

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

When x is proportional to y and y = kx, k is called the constant of proportionality

y

## Definition of Constant of Proportionality

is the constant of proportionality

k =

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

## Properties ofProportions

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

In a proportion, the product of the extremes is equal to the product of the means

a c

b d

b ≠ 0, d ≠ 0

* The terms b and c of the proportion are called means, and the terms a and d are the extremes

## Cross-Product Property

then a x d = b x c

=

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

In a proportion, the extremes may be interchanged

a c d c

b d b a

b ≠ 0, d ≠ 0, a ≠ 0

## Interchange Extremes Property

then

=

=

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

## Interchange Means Property(Alternation Property)

In a proportion, the means may be interchanged

a c a b

b d c d

b ≠ 0, d ≠ 0, c ≠ 0

then

=

=

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

The proportions are equivalent when inverse both ratios

a c b d

b d a c

b ≠ 0, d ≠ 0, a ≠ 0, c ≠ 0

## Inversion Property

then

=

=

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

If the products of two pairs of factors are equal, the factors of one pair can be the means and the factors of the other the extremes of a proportion

c a

b d

b ≠ 0, d ≠ 0

a, b are the means, and c, d are the extremes

## Equal Factor Products Property

a x b = c x d then

=

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

The proportions are equivalent when adding unity to both ratios

a c a + b c + d

b d b d

b ≠ 0, d ≠ 0

## Composition Property

then

=

=

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

The proportions are equivalent when subtracting unity to both ratios

a c a - b c - d

b d b d

b ≠ 0, d ≠ 0

## Division Property

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

## Definition of Geometric Mean (Mean Proportional)

Suppose a, x, and d are positive real numbers

a x

x d

Then, x is called the geometric mean or mean proportional, between a and d

then x2 = a d or x = √ad

ABC and DEF are line segments. If AB = 10, AC = 15, DE = 8, and DF = 12,do B and E divide ABC and DEF proportionally?

## Example - Divided Proportionally

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

ABC and DEF are line segments. If AB = 10, AC = 15, DE = 8, and DF = 12,do B and E divide ABC and DEF proportionally?

BC = 15 – 10 = 5

EF = 12 – 8 = 4

AB : BC = 10 : 5 = 2 : 1

DE : EF = 8 : 4 = 2 : 1

AB : BC = DE : EF

## Dilations

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

A dilation of k is a transformation of the plane such that:

The image of point O, the center of dilation, is O

When k is positive and the image of P is P’, then OP and OP’ are the same ray and OP’ = kOP.

When k is negative and the image of P is P’, then OP and OP’ are opposite rays and P’ = – kOP

## Dilations

Mr. Chin-Sung Lin

ERHS Math Geometry

When | k | > 1, the dilation is called an enlargement

When 0 < | k | < 1, the dilation is called a contraction

Under a dilation of k with the center at the origin:
