Transcript

  • 1. 7.2 Writing and Solving Proportions Day 2
  • 2. Essential Questions
    • What is the connection between a ratio and a fraction?
    • Why are ratios and proportions important?
    • How are scale drawings, models, and proportions used in everyday life?
  • 3.
    • A scale drawing shows the shape of an object but not the actual size. A scale give the ratio of the measurements in the drawing – such as 1:10 scale.
    • This might mean “scale to actual” is 1 to 10 or the actual object is 10 times larger.
  • 4.
    • A map states that 1 in = 50 miles. If the distance on the map between two cites is 2.8 inches, how far actually are the two cities apart?
    • Scale
    • Actual
  • 5.
    • Lady bugs average 0.4 inches in length. A scale drawing of a ladybug will be made using a scale of 10:1 (model to actual). What will the length of the ladybug be in the drawing?
    • Scale
    • Actual
  • 6. Similar Polygons
    • Similar polygons have the same shape but not necessarily the same size. They are, however, proportional.
  • 7.
    • Find the missing length using proportions
    30 45 25 n
  • 8. Find the missing side 15 37.5 30 y
  • 9. Homework
