# NYS Core Curriculum lesson 3 Equivalent Ratios NYS Core Curriculum lesson 3 Equivalent Ratios Write a one-sentence story problem about ratios. The ratio of sunny days to cloudy days in Montgomery is 3:1. Write the ratio in two different forms. 3:1 3 to 1 When prompted by your teacher, share your sentences and ratios with your table partner. You will have 2 minutes. Lesson 3 Exercise 2 We can use a tape diagram to represent the ratio of the lengths of ribbon. Let us create one together. How many units should we draw for Shannis portion of the ratio? How many units should we draw for Mels portion of the ratio? Lets represent this ratio in a table. Shannis Ribbon Mels Ribbon

Shanni and Mel are using ribbon to decorate a project in their art class. The ratio of the length of Shannis ribbon to Mels ribbon is 7:3. Draw a tape diagram to represent this ratio: Shanni (7) Mel (3) What does each unit on the tape diagram represent? (Students discuss.) (some unit that is a length) What if each unit on the tape diagram represents 1 inch? Shannis 7 inches and Mels 3 inches? What is the ratio of the lengths of the ribbons? 7:3 What if each unit on the tape diagram represents 2 meters? What are the lengths of the ribbons? Shanni= 14 meters; Mel = 6 meters How did you determine that amount? What is the length of Shannis and Mels ribbons now? (Go back to prior slide with equiv. chart) Lesson 3 continued

We just explored 3 different possibilities for the length of the ribbon; did the number of units in our tape ever diagram ever change? No What did these 3 ratios, 7:3, 14:6, and 21:9, all have in common? Mathematicians call these ratios equivalent. What ratios can we say are equivalent to 7:3? Lesson 3 continued Shanni and Mel are using ribbon to decorate a project in their art class. The ratio of the length of Shannis ribbon to Mels ribbon is 7:3. Draw a tape diagram to represent this ratio

If Mason ran 4 miles, how far did Laney run? Draw a tape diagram to demonstrate how you found the answer. 2 2 Mason (2) Laney(3) 2 2 2 B. If Laney ran 930 meters, how far did Mason run? Draw a tape diagram to determine how you found the answer. Mason (2) 620 meters 310

she got correct is 2:9. A. If Josie missed 8 questions, how many did she get right? Draw a tape diagram to demonstrate how you found the answer. Wrong 4 4 Right 4 B. If Josie missed 20, how many did she get right? Draw a tape diagram how you found the answer.

5 ?X9= How do you find these missing numbers? Multiply 2x5 and 9x5 Describe how to create equivalent ratios. Multiply both numbers of the ratio by the same number, be sure to use the same number on the top and the bottom! Closing of lesson 3 Two ratios A:B and C:D are equivalent if there is a positive number ,c, such that C= cA and D=cB. Ratios are equivalent if there is a positive number that can be multiplied by both quantities in one ratio to equal the corresponding quantities in the second ratio.

Exit Ticket Lesson 3 For every two dollars that Pam saves in her account, her brother saves five dollars. A. Determine a ratio to describe the money in Pams account to the money in her brothers account. B. If Pam has 40 dollars in her account, how much money does her brother have in his account? Use a tape diagram to support your answer. C. Record the equivalent ratio. D. Create another possible ratio that describes the relationship between Pams account and her brothers account. Solutions to Exit ticket lesson 3 For every two dollars that Pam saves in her account, her brother saves five dollars. A. Determine a ratio to describe the money in Pams account to the money in her brothers account. 2:5
