### Camille's post for Bob and Ratio for October 21, 2009

Bob and Ratio

Today at school we had to make ratios about a picture which can be seen at Sargent Park Math Zone. Our homework is posted there also. So here's my homework. (:

1. 3 part to part ratios
green to purple
3:1

blue to green
3:3

pink to orange
2:1

2. 2 part to whole ratios
green to total
3:12

total to pink
12:2

3. 2 part to part to part ratios
gold to pink to green
1:2:3

orange to blue to silver
1:3:1

4. the pick ratio 3:2

ratio notation : 3:2

fraction: 3/2

decimal: 1.5

percent: 150%

5. Equivalent Ratios

3:2

To make a equivalent ratio you can multiply or divide the number. For example, 6:4 /2 = 3:2
6:4 x 2 = 12:8.

6. 3 questions

what is the ratio of red to green ?

Is the ratio equivalent ? if so, why ? if not why ?

What is the part to total ratio of orange ?

Bob part 2

What mistakes I did and how can I improve it.

I made alot of mistakes, I didn't simplify the answer. For number 17 i put 115/92 = 10/6. I put 6 instead of 8 and i didn't show my work. I can improve my mistakes by simplifying the answer, read the question carefully, think about the question before I answer, and re- read my test before I hand it in.

Rewrite 2 questions that gave me difficulty.

Four students are running for student council president. Of 30 students polled, 14 chose Mikey, 5 chose Patty, 7 chose Bria,and the rest chose Kara. What is the ratio for votes for girls to boys in the student council election? Express the ratio in the lowest terms.

19:11 11:19 16:3 14:7

You have 6 red balls, 8 yellow balls, and 3 blue balls. In lowest terms , what is the ratio of red balls to total balls ?

17:6 8:3 6:17 9:3

and please try to answer these question on the comment box ! thank you.

Great job Camille.
1. I don't see red so im guesing 0:1
2.Any ratio can be equvilent I think because anything can be multiplied.
3.I only see yellow orange so I guess it's that so 1:12.

question one : the answer is 11:19bria got 7 and kara got 4. 7=4= 11 then mikey got 14 and patty got 5. 14 +5= 19. so then its 11:19. and because you can't simplify 19 or 11. No number fit in those numbers equally.

Camille873

Question 2: the answer is 6: 17 because, there are 6 red balls and the total is 17 because, there are 6 red balls, 8 yellow balls, and 3 blue balls. so 6=8=3 = 17. And you can simplify 6 but you can simpify17. No number fits equally in that number. So you cant simplify it.
