### Gerard's Proportion Post

Part 1

Ratio: A comparison of two quantities that both have the same unit of measure.

Rate: is a ratio that compares two
quantities of different units

Proportion: A relationship that says that two ratios or two rates are equal. Can be written in fraction form

Part 2

1.  5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about _____km/h.

2.  Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns.  Emma earned \$75 last week.  How much money did Emma save last week?

Part 3

If you try the three different ways for 4/9 = 16/32 it will never work because they are not equivalent
Part 4

Part 5

1. No It`s not fair.
2. No it`s still not fair even the proportion disagrees.

3.The reason why it is not fair is because that homeless man got sent to prison for 15 years for stealing a 100 dollar bill which he gave back. While the other guy the Ex-Ceo who stole 3 Billion Dollars only went to prison for 40 months which is about 3 years.

4. If I was the judge I would sent the Ex-Ceo to 47 years and one month of imprisonment because I researched about this guy named Allen Standford and he stole 7billion dollars and got imprisoned for 110 years. So then I divided 110 by 7 which equaled around 15.7years. Then I multiplied it by 3 to get 47.1 years and 3 billion dollars. Also I would sent the homeless man to around 1-3 months of imprisonment because all he was that he stole a 100 dollar bill then he gave it back afterwards. But what the homeless man did i think  was attempted Robbery.

Bonus Question

Question:
How tall is the tree on the left?

The guy is Canadian because he is walking in Assiniboine Park. The average height of a Canadian is 6 ft so then I multiplied him by 3. So then I got 6*3= 18 ft. So the tree would be 18 ft tall or approximately

1. One star is I defined ratio, rate and proportion to the best of my abilities. Another star is I made my post as colourful as I can so i can attract people to look at it. The final star is I put a bibliography so I don't get sued for plagiarism. One wish I have is that I should make it even better next time because there is still room for improvements and because in this world no is perfect because everyone makes mistakes.
