### How I stopped an Alien Invasion using Proportion

One day I went early to school and met Abby at Harbecks room…Hey Abby can you help me on the proportion questions on page 67, 68, &69? OK! What number are you at? Uhm, wait. NOSIES…Me & Abby what’s that sound? Let’s go check it out… (Alien coming out of the ship) Earthlings we are going to destroy your planet. How rude! Pst Caitlin, I bet there allergic to math questions. Huh? You make no sense Abby, Why would you think that? But whatever let’s give it a try. Uh, they’re clothing says I hate Math questions.

ME: Ok question number 4 page 67: Determine the unit rate.

a) Three dinner rolls cost 99¢.

For 1 dinner roll it would be about 33 cents.

b) Seven identical objects have a mass of 14 kg.

For the mass of 0.5 objects it will be about 1kg.

Aliens: AAAHHHH… no!

Abby: HA. I’ll try number 16 page 68.

A gardener takes a half hour to mow and
weed a lawn that measures 20 m by 15 m.
He charges \$25 per hour. How much
should the gardener receive for a lawn that
measures 40 m by 30 m?

The gardener would receive about \$25.

Alien: NOOOO, my skin is getting all itchy & i'm getting a major migrain.

Me: BWAHAHAHA. That’s what you get for threatening us, Abby let’s do the last one together!

HHMM, what question should we do now…

OUR ANSWER!

ALIENS: AAAH, please stop it hurt’s to much .
ME & ABBY: IF YOU DON’T DESTROY THE EARTH WE WILL STOP.
ALIENS: Ok, Ok we won’t destroy your Loved Planet called Earth. BUT PLEASE STOP WITH THE PROPORTION MATH QUESTION & ANSWERS.
ME & ABBY: OOOKAAY.[:
[sorry theres no picture of an alien or something, I don't understand how to put the UR address.]
