Ratios and Proportions CHAPTER 8

Ratios • Ratio- Uses division to compare two numbers. • Equivalent ratios- Two ratios are equivalent ratios when they have the same value. 8. 1

Writing a Ratio WORDS NUMBERS • Wins to losses • wins losses • Wins: Losses 18 to 13 18: 13 ALGEBRA A to B, where b is nonzero A B, where B is nonzero A: B where B is nonzero

Writing Ratios in Simplest Form • A water ride lasts 2 • Write hours as minutes so that the units are min. Suppose you the same. wait in line for 1 ½ 1 h+1/2 h=60 min+30 min =90 min hours to ride the • Write the ratio of time water ride. Follow spent in line to time the steps below to spent on the ride. find the ratio of Time in line= 90 time spent in line to Time on ride 2 time spent on the = 45 water ride. 1

Comparing Ratios Nicole and Taylor compared their CD collections. To determine who has a greater ratio of rock CDs to pop CDs, write the ratios. Rock Pop Nicole 9 24 Hip. Hop 16 Taylor 42 70 25 Taylor: Rock = 42 Pop 70 =0. 6 Nicole: Rock =9 Pop 24 =0. 375

Rates 8. 2 • Rate- is a ratio of two quantities measured in different units. • Unit Rate- is a rate that has a denominator of 1 unit rates below are equivalent.

Finding a Unit Rate • During Spring, a sunflower can grow 6 in. in 12 hrs. What is the growth rate of Sunflower in in. per hour? • 6 in. = 6 in. /12 12 h/12 Divide numerator and denominator by 12 = 0. 5 in. simplify 1 h Answer: The growth rate of Sunflower is about 0. 5 in. per hour.

Finding an average speed • An ice skater took 2 min. 30 sec. to complete a 1500 meter race. What was the skater’s average speed? - Divide numerator and denominator by 150. - Simplify • Rewrite the time so that the units are the same. 2 min+30 sec=120 sec+ 30 sec=150 sec Find the average speed 1500 m=1500 m/150 150 sec/150 =10 m 1 sec Answer: the ice skater’s average speed was 10 m per sec.

Writing and solving proportions 8. 4 • Proportion- is an equation that states that two ratios are equivalent.

proportions • Numbers: 3 = 6 5 10 The Proportion is read “ 3 is to 5 as 6 is to 10. ” • Algebra: a = c b d Where b and d are nonzero numbers.

Solving proportions • Solve: 6 = x Write original proportion 10 25 25 x 6 = 25 x x Multiply each side by 25 10 25 150 = X Simplify 10 15=x Simplify Fraction Answer: The solution is 15.

solving proportions using cross products 8. 5 • cross products- in a proportion a/b = c/d where b = 0, the cross products are ad and bc

Cross products property • Words: The cross products of a proportion are equal • Numbers: 3 = 15 4 x 15 = 60 4 20 3 x 20 = 60 • Algebra: If a/b = c/d where b and d are nonzero numbers, then ad = bc.

solving a proportion using cross products • Use the cross products property to solve: 4/8 = 5/d. 1. Write original proportion. 2/1 = 6/d 2. Cross products property. 2 d = 1 x 6 3. Divide each side by 2. 2 d/2 = 1 x 6/2 4. Simplify d = 3

Scale Drawings and Models 8. 6 • Scale drawing- a diagram of an object in which the dimensions are in proportion to the actual dimensions of the object. • Scale- On a scale drawing tells how the drawing’s are related. • Scale model- a model of an object in which the dimensions are in proportion to the actual dimensions of the object.

Finding a Dimension on a Scale Model A scale model of the White House appears Japan. The scale used is 1: 2. The height h of the main building of the White House is 76 ft. Find the height on the Model. 1 = h scale model 2 76 building 1 x 76 = 2 x h Cross products property. 38 = h divide each side by 2.
