### Ryan Proportion Post

Part 1
Ratio- a pair of numbers that compares different kind of units. Eg 1:2
Rate- compared two quantities measured in different units.
Eg: 200km / per hour.
Proportion- a relationship says that ratio and rate are equal.
Eg

Dogs=  2     4             2/5   = 4/X
Cats     5     x
You multiply 2 by 2 to get for and you multiply 5 by 2 that will get you a x.
4/10

Part 2

Part 4

1.) Does this seems fair
No its not fair.
2.)With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above. Does it seem just and fair?
No its still not fair.
3.)Why have you made this choice?
Well because the CEO stole 3 million dollars and only be sent to jail for 40 months or 3 years and 4 months. While this person stole \$100 and has to go to jail for 15 years.
4.)What would you have done if you were the judge
I would give the CEO to be in jail for 15 years istead of 3 years and 4 months and let the homeless person go in jail for a week.
