  1. 1. Write Ratios & Proportions Section 3.5 P. 162-167
  2. 2. • We will review the concept of a ratio and a proportion.• We will solve proportions algebraically.• We will relate proportions to real-world situations.
  3. 3. • What is a ratio? A ratio uses division to compare two quantities.• How can ratios be written? a to b a:b a bAll the above are read “ a to b.”Ratios should be written in simplest form.
  4. 4. • A volleyball team plays 14 home matches and 10 away matches.• Find the ratio of home matches to away matches.• Find the ratio of home matches to all matches.• Find the ratio of away to home matches.• Write your answer in simplest form.
  5. 5. • What is a proportion?• A proportion is an equation that states that two ratios are equivalent. a c , where b, d 0 b d
  6. 6. • Many times one of the values of a proportion is unknown. You can solve a proportion using the same methods you used to solve equations.• Some proportions can also be solved by the concept of equivalent ratios.
  7. 7. Setting up a proportion• 3 is to 8 as x is to 32 solve for “x”• y is to 10 as 7 is to 2 solve for “y”
