Presentation Transcript

### Ratios and Proportions

Created By: Mr. Kornfield

Terms
• Ratios compare two numbers.
• Ex. of a ratio 1gal of gas : \$3
• Ex. of a proportion 5ft. : 50ft. = 1ft. : 10ft.
• Ratios also look like fractions, but it means the same
• 1/3 5/50 1/10
Terms Cont.
• A proportion is an equation with a ratio on each side. It is a statement that two ratios are equal.
• Ex.3/4 = 6/8
• Ex. 7:14 = 1:2
• Cross Product Property means the same as cross multiply.
• Ex. v:w = x:y v/w = x/y
• v · y = w · x
• 3/4 = 9/x
• 3 · x = 4 · 9
• Extended Proportion is a statement with three or more congruent ratios.
• Ex. 30:6 = 15:3 = 5:1
• Ex. 1500:50 = 750:25 = 150:5 = 30:1
Scale and Scale Drawing
• A scale is the ratio of any length in a scale drawing to the corresponding actual length, the lengths may be in different units.
• A scale drawing is a drawing in which all lengths are proportional to corresponding actual lengths.
Scale Drawing Example

Scale:

½ in.:1ft.

Actual Measures:

Side A= 8ft.

Side B= 12ft.

Side C= 12ft.

Side D= 8ft.

Opening E= 4 ft.

For Homework
• When you go home choose a room
• Measure the room to the nearest inch
• Create a scale drawing that that includes a scale of ½ in. : 1 ft. (Use graph paper provided on the back of your rubric)
• Make sure you include windows, doors, hallways, and openings if applicable
• Work should be shown when displaying conversion measurements
• Please include at least 3 pieces of furniture, make sure EVERYTHING is to scale
• Make sure to include creativity such as color, designs, and any individual artistic features
