### Four 4's

These two equations are the same even though one is using a fraction while the other is using a division sign , but they do both mean the same thing.

You can write divide like 4/4 or 4÷4 they equal the same thing just written in a different way.

how much do the coins add up to ?
All the coins in the jar add up to \$100

Would the jar look the same if the money was Canadian?
It would have less of each coin because Canada has Loonies and Toonies compared to Americans that have bills as dollars. So it would look a lot less if it was all Canadian.

Coin Math part 2

If you started dropping coins into the jar on January 1 , 2010, what day would you finish filling up the jar?

If the jar was filled with all american coins, it would have 1280 coins in it. This filled up 3 quarters of the jar. If you find how much coins can fit in the whole jar it will make this problem easier. So what you do is find how much 1280 divided by 3 multiplied by 4 is.

So if there is 1707 coins in there jar it would take me approximately 4.79 years to fill the whole jar by putting one coin in it each day. So it would take be around 4 years, so what I'm thinking that it is 79 percent of the year, and that would be around 284 days, I estimate 4 years and 284 days,
That would be October 11, 2014.

How much of the jar is filled with Canadian coins ?

The jar has 370 coins in it. We have found out that 3/4 of the jar is 1280 , so if you divide that by 4 you get 320 , so now we know its more than 1/4 of the jar. So I'm guessing its around 27-30 percent of the whole jar.

### Mikayla's ration scribepost

There are different ways to write a ratio.
For example, 4:12
1. As a fraction.
4/12
2. As a decimal.
To turn a fraction into a decimal, divide the numerator by it's denominator.
4/12 = 0.33
3. As a percent.
To turn a decimal into a percent, move the decimal point two places to the right.
0.33 = 33%
PS: you can also simplify the ratio.
Ex: 4:12 = 1:3
( I divided both number by 4. )

### Mikayla's Coin math

Questions :
What is the value of each type of coin in the jar?
penny= 1 cent
nickel= 5 cents
dime= 10 cents
quarter= 25 cents
loonie= 1 dollar
twoonie= 2 dollars

How many more coins would it take to fill up the jar?
The jar is about three-quarters full. So if you add a quarter more of the number of coins that are in the jar, then the jar would probably be full.

If the jar was filled with Canadian money, would you need more coins?
No, because unlike US dollars, Canadian money has more coins. So for example, instead of having four US quarters, we can just put one Canadian loonie.

### Mikayla's scribepost for September 30th

question16.

a) Cool Flavours obviously produced this graph to make you think that they have a big difference from Dairy Taste. Actually there is only \$0.2 million of a difference between Cool Flavours and Dairy Taste.

b)This graph is misleading because it makes you think that there is a big difference in the sales of the two ice cream stores when the truth is, there is only \$0.2 million of a difference.

### The four 4's

Both equations may seem different but they are actually the same. The reason they look different is because one is written horizontally and the other is written in fraction form. The fraction bar means the same as the division symbol, that's why these two equations mean the same thing.

### Vicky's Post Question 16

Heather used a copier to make the following 50% reduction.
(I CANNOT PROVIDE A PICTURE, MYTEXTBOOK DOES NOT WORK)
a) Write the ratio of the length A'B' compared to the length of AB.
The ratio of the length of A'B' compared to the length of AB is 1:2
b)Write the ratio of the length of A'C' compared to the length of AC
The ratio is also 1:2
c)Use your knowledge of ratio and percent to explain the meaning of a 50% reduction.
50% reduction (ratio) is like 2:4 that is reduced by a half / 1:2. In percent it is like 100% turned into 50%

### Hello!

Hello everybody!

This is Kim, your student mentor! Hope you all are having a great week!

I'm just wondering, what can I do to help you in this class? Do you have any ideas?

The site you guys have here looks pretty cool. I think math would have been easier for me in grade 8 if I had a cool website like this to keep notes organized. Do you guys like having class like this too?

Do you have any questions for me? I was thinking that I better make an effort to make myself known as me, instead of the crazy person who posts pirate videos.

Speaking of which, here is another one. Tell me what you think.

### paulo 8-73 Scribepost

### Caitlin T's BOB October 6

BOB
The Three things I know about graphing are:
1.) There is always an interval on a bar graph(a.k.a bar chart), line graph, double bar graph, and double line graph.
2.)There are 3 ways you can mislead a graph or distort : Distorting the Scale , Distorting the Size of the Bars and Distorting the Visuals.
3.)Line graphs are for showing something over time. Bar graphs are for comparing data by categories or groups(i think). Circle graphs are best for comparing data by using percents. Pictographs are best for comparing data using pictures as a representative.
What I know that would improve my test:
I could've improved if i put more information, exspecially better sentences(which I didn't do). Plus maybe i Should've used that paper that was handed out. && I should've made everything better, like my drawings, my writing etc.

I sometimes need to remember stuff, because
every time we learn something new, I sometimes forget.

I learned how to make ratios in lowest terms easier
ways

I will improve by paying more attention and
making sure if I'm doing something right or wrong

### Alexander's Post for Question 16

Question #16

Heather used a copier to ma
ke the following 50% reduction.

a) Write the ratio of the length A'B' compared to the length of AB.

The ratio of the length of A'B' compared to the length of AB is 1:2

b)Write the ratio of the length of A'C' compared to the length of AC

The ratio is also 1:2

c)Use your knowledge of ratio and percent to explain the meaning of a 50% reduction.

A 50% reduction is where something is reduced by 50%, that means it will be cut in half. Example if 100 would be reduced by 50% it would become 50

Yes I know it's late but I can't get to my text book so I had to use alternative sources.

### Jarret873, BOB 2

What I Learned And What I Need To Work On

I really need to work on studying more and paying more attention in class.

I got to learn how to do a ratio table

1. Whatever You Do To One Side You Must Do To The Other
2. Study!
3. Pay more attention
I have to learn how to get the answers questions faster. I have to remember to check my work over, as much as possible to make sure things are as right as it seems, because doing things the faster way doesn't always turn successful "specially" in math.

What I Learned And What I Need To Work On

I really need to work on reading the questions more carefully. To help me solve the questions easier and more understandable, and to enable me to give a clear and understandable answer to people reading my answer or text.

Another thing i need to work on is always remembering rules on using a ratio table .

1. No Adding or Subtracting In Specific Ways
2. Whatever You Do To One Side You Must Do To The Other
Last but not the least is that , i have to learn and remember to use the faster ways to get an answer to a question. But at the same time remembering to check over my work, as much as possible to make sure things are as right as it seems, because doing things the faster way doesn't always turn successful "specially" in math.

### BOB and ratio

Ratios:
Part to pat
Orange to green ( 1:3 )

Part to total
Blue to total ( 3:12 )
Pink to total (2:12)

Three- part
Green to purple to pink (3:1:2)
Total to blue to purple (12:3:1)

Ratio notation, Fraction, Decimal, and Percent

Shades of green to shades of pink ( G:P ) 3/2 , 1.5 , 150 %

Equivalent Ratios

Equivalent ratios are two ratios that have the same value when simplified. For exaple, 3:12 is the ratio of green colored crayons to the total number of crayons. 1:4 is equivalent to 3:12 because 3 and 12 and both divisible by 3. Divide both 3 and 12 by 3, and you get 1:4.

Questions

1) Basing on the picture above, make a ratio of the number of vowels to the number of consonants. Express it in lowest terms.

2) How do you know if you can or cannot simplify a ratio ?

3) In lowest terms, make a ratio of the number of blue crayons to the total number of crayons.

BOB2

The mistakes I did on the test were mostly on the multiple choice questions. I just didn't put the ratio in the right order. The answer is supposed to be 3:7, but instead I chose 7:3. Another mistake I did was that I got the wrong answer for finding the percent.

4. Four students are running for student council president. Of 30 students polled, 15 chose Mikw, 3 chose Patricia, 6 chose Brian, and the rest chose Karen. What is the ratio of votes for girls to votes for boys in the student council election? express the ratio in lowest terms.

a. 3:7 b. 7:3 c. 15;6 d. 21:9

9:21

9/21 divide by 3/3

=3/7 = 3:7

### Alexander's BOB Ratio

Part To Part Ratios:
Blue to Green- 9:2
Orange to Green- 7:2
Blue Vowels To Blue Constants - 5:4

Part to Total Ratios:
Blue to Total -9:18
Orange to Total-7:18

Three Part Ratio
Blue to Orange to Green - 9:7:2

Ratio Notation, Fraction, Decimal, and Percent
Punctuation to Constants
P/C- 1/8, 0.125:1, 12.5%:100%

Equivalent Ratios
Equivalent Ratios are ratios that equal the same. E.g. 10:2 and 5:1 are equivalent.
To make equivalent ratios you can divide or multiply, but always do what you do to one side to the other.

Questions
1) What would be a part to part to whole ratio?
2)Show Orange to green or 7:2 ratio notation, fraction, decimal and percent
3)Make an equivalent ratio of blue to green, or 9:2

PART 2

1 mistake I made was in reading the question and figuring out the ratio order. Like in the question where it asked what was the vote of girls to guys, I put it in the order of guys to girls. For future test I will remember to read over my questions.

1 question I got wrong was the picture frame question. I put 11cm instead of 12.6cm.

### Hannah's scricepost for october 16

#21. A golden rectangle has a length to width ratio called the golden ratio, which approximately 1.62.

a) Which of the following dimensions of rectangles are examples of golden rectangles?

• 24 m x 38.9 m = 1.62 Golden rectangle
• 52 cm x 120.5 = 2.31
• 348 mm x 565 mm = 1.62 Golden rectangle

I got the answers NOT by multiplying the length and width but by dividing the length by the width.

b) If the width of a golden rectangle is 6.4, what is it's length? Give your answer to the nearest tenth of a metre.

### Kisha's BOB ratio post

Part to part

-yellow to white (2:1)
-blue to green (4:2)
-brown to orange (3:2)

Part to total ratio

-white to total (1:22)
-orange to total (3:22)

Three part ratio

-green to blue to brown (2:4:3)

Ratio notation, fraction, decimal, and percent

-yellow to blue (2:4, 2/4, 0.5, 50%)

Equivalent ratios

-yellow to blue (2:4)
-2:4 is equivalent to 4:8, 5:10, 6:12, etc.
You can find equivalent ratios by multiplying or dividing both sides by the same number. It is similar to finding equivalent fractions.

Questions
What is a part to whole ratio?
How do you make a 3 part ratio?

How To Create Equivalent Ratios.
A way to create equivalent ratios is the multiplying the parts of the ratio by any number you'll like. A ratio i have chosen is Yellow to Blue (2:4). The equivalent ratio to this is 1:2 because 1:2 x 2 = 2:4 and on and on multiplying by the same number, which will make more equivalent ratios.
Questions:

2)What is the ratio, ratio notation, and decimal of 2/12?
3)Write the percent form of green to grey. (2:1)

Equivelent ratios.
You can make equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing the ratio. But you always have to remember to always do what you did to one side you always have to do to the other

Questions.
1) Show A to E or 3 : 2 in ration notation, fraction, decimal, and percent.
2) Explain what is a equivelent ratios?
3) Make an equivalent ratio of 7 : 8?

What i need to work on.

red/total = 26/52
red/total = 2 / 4 = (1/2)
My mistake is by not putting the ratio in lowest term.
On the future test will put the ratios in lowest term even if it doesn's say to simply.

total = 30 students
3+15+6 = 24
30-24 = 6 votes for Karen
My mistake is by not following the order of word ratio.
On future test ill reread the test to make sure the i follow the word ratio order.

My mistake was not understanding the question.
On future tes i will try my best to understand a question.

BOB 2
The mistakes I made on my test were:
Multiple Choice-
4. Four students are running for student council president. Of 30 students polled, 15 chose Mike, 3 chose Patricia, 6 chose Brian, and the rest chose Karen. What is the ratio of votes for girls to votes for boys in the student council election? Express the ratio in lowest terms.
- My answer was d/21:9. The actual answer was a/3:7. My mistake was I misread the question/word ratio. In the future I will read through the question twice.
7. A rapid transit train has 39 passengers on it as it starts its run. At the first stop 12 passengers get off and 18 passengers get on. What is the ratio of the number of passenger who were on the train as it arrived in the first station to the number who were on the train when it left the first station? Express your answer in lowest terms.
- My answer was d/27:39. The acutal answer was b/13:15. My mistake was I didn't read the question well enough. In the future I will read the question more well.
8. A picture frame has a width to length ratio of 5:7. If the width of the photo is 9 cm, the length of the photo of the photo is.
- My answer was a/11cm. The actual answer is b/12.6 cm. My mistake was I thought that you could use addition in ratios. In the future I will not use addition in ratio questions.
Completion
14. What percent (to one decimal) of the group prefers toasted O's?
- My answer was 15.1%. (Sorry, I dont know the actual answer to this question.) Next time I will use a ratio chart to solve the question.
15
D. Write each ratio in lowest terms. (18:27)
- My answer was 9:13.5. The actual answer was 2:3. In the future I will try to find more ways to get the correct answer.
16. You have a bag with one white ball, six red balls, eight green balls, and three purple balls. In lowest terms what is the ratio of red balls to the whole bag of balls?
- My answer was 1:2. The actual answer was 1:3. My mistake was I thought that the question meant the red balls compared to the rest of the balls. But now I know that it means all of the balls together compared to that group.
17. Use the data in the table below to determine which sports teams have equivalent scored by to scored against ratios.
- My answer was Baseball Team A and Hockey Team A. The actual answer was Baseball Team A to Basketball Team A. My mistake was I thought the answer was about addition. But it was actually about division. In the future I will not use addition.

3.4:1 what does this ratio represent?

### Caitlin.T's BOB Ratio

1.) THREE, PART-TO-PART RATIOS:
a.) green to yellow - (3:2)
b.) pink to grey - (2:1)
c.) peach to blue - (1:4)
2.) TWO, PART TO TOTAL RATIOS:
a.) orange to total - (2:22)
b.) white to total - (1:22
3.) TWO, THREE PART RATIOS :
a.) pink to green to blue - (2:3:4)
b.) peach to yellow to orange - (1:2:2)
4.) Here is my ratio in ratio notation, fraction, decimal, percent, and a word form:
The ratio i chose was green to yellow.
Ratio Notation: 3:2
Fraction: 3/2
Decimal: 1.5
Percent: 150%

To get the the fraction you should know the ratio notation, then to get the decimal you have to divide the numerator and the denominater of the fraction. Then to get the percent you multiply the decimal by 100, then you get your answer.

Making An Equivalent Ratio

To make equivalent ratios, you have to know that if you do something to one side that you do it to the other side as well.

3 Questions

1.)What would some of the ratios be in the lowest terms?
2.) Give me one equivalent ratio for 2/1?
3.)Show how the ratio peach to blue could be shown as a fraction,decimal, and a percent.

BOB 2

I made lots of mistakes in my test, but I'm going to tell you two of them that didn't really make any sense to me when I got to them.

The first one was -

8.) A picture frame has a width to length ratio of 5:7. If the width of the photo is 9 cm, the length of the ph0to is

I got this answer wrong b/c i just guessed, But next time for me to remember I will, get the length to width ratio then get the other length (9) and then make it into a equivalent fraction, then multiply 5 and 1,8 to get to 9 then do it to the other side too. So it would look like 5/9=7/?
then like I said earlier multiply the fraction by 1.8, then y answer for 7/? would be 12.6.(I got 1.8 from dividing 5 and 9.

Another One-

18.) In a student election Carol gets 60% of the votes. If there were 485 votes cast, how many votes did carol get?

I didn't get to answer it b/c I was still trying to figure out the answer. But a way for me to remember to answer it correctly is that, I would use a ratio table starting with VOTES and on the other side it would be 60%.

The two questions-

10. What percent of all the phones were Motorola?
a. 14.4% b. 25% c. 50% d. 77%

18. In a student election Carol gets 60% of the votes. if there were 485 votes cast, how many votes did carol get?

GREETINGS!! (:

PART TO PART RATIO'S

1. - related to blue to related to green
- 3: 3
- 3 to 3
- rtb/ rtg = 3/3
- 1.0: 1
- 100 % :100
- Im not sure if theres an equivalent ratio for this one..

2. - 1 word to 2 or more words
- 1: 2
- 1 to 2
- word/ words = 1/2
- 0.5: 1
- 50% :100

- 4/12 = 1/3 ( I divide the numerator and the denominator by 4 )

QUESTIONS:

1. Fractions,decimals and percents are like a chain. Tell me why or why not? Explain and show your answer.

2. How do you make a fraction for a three part ratio?

3. If you were ask to make another part to part ratio about this picture besides for the one I have, what would it be? Tell me the ratio notation, fraction, decimal, percent and its equivallent ratio.

THANKS FOR READING MY POST! GOOD LUCK FOR THE TEST TOMORROW!! HOPE YOU'LL DO GOOD!! (:
AND DONT FORGET TO COMMENT!! (:

Byeee!! (:

BOB2
This is my bob for extra marks. I almost failed my test so that I need to work on some stuff. Like when to use a ratio table, I have no idea when to use a ratio table ( that's embarrassing ). Like the last question.

18) In a student election Carol gets 60% of the votes. If there were 485 votes cast, how many votes did Carol get?
My answer is 194 instead of 291. When I was doing the test, I have no clue what to do until when we went over it in class. I didn't know that we have to use a ratio table to show our work. What I did was I used a calculator. I kinda guess.

The other mistakes I got is kind of like the same thing as the one above because they all use ratio table to find the answers..

Question:
1. How do you know when to use a ratio table?
