Want to know what a direct variation looks like graphically? Basically, it's a straight line that goes through the origin. To get a better picture, check out this tutorial!
The idea of proportions is that a ratio can be written in many ways and still be equal to the same value. That's why proportions are actually equations with equal ratios. This is a bit of a tricky definition, so make sure to watch the tutorial!
To master equivalent ratios, you need to practice. Follow along with this tutorial to practice filling in a table with equivalent ratios.
Ratios are used to compare numbers. When you're working with ratios, it's sometimes easier to work with an equivalent ratio. Equivalent ratios have different numbers but represent the same relationship. In this tutorial, you'll see how to find equivalent ratios by first writing the given ratio as a fraction. Take a look!
Ratios are proportional if they represent the same relationship. One way to see if two ratios are proportional is to write them as fractions and then reduce them. If the reduced fractions are the same, your ratios are proportional. To see this process in action, check out this tutorial!
Trying to figure out if two ratios are proportional? If they're in fraction form, set them equal to each other to test if they are proportional. Cross multiply and simplify. If you get a true statement, then the ratios are proportional! This tutorial gives you a great example!
To see if multiple ratios are proportional, you could write them as fractions, reduce them, and compare them. If the reduced fractions are all the same, then you have proportional ratios. To see this process step-by-step, check out this tutorial!
Equivalent ratios are just like equivalent fractions. If two ratios have the same value, then they are equivalent, even though they may look very different! In this tutorial, take a look at equivalent ratios and learn how to tell if you have equivalent ratios.
