Ratio and Proportion

What is a ratio?

Ratios are written with the : symbol.

A ratio is a comparison of two similar quantities.

The ratio of 6 to 3 isβ¦6Γ·3

63

6 :3

2 :1

(fraction form)

A Recipe for pancakes uses 3 cups of flour and 2 cups of milk. What is

the ratio of flour to milk?

Means

Extremes

β¦inner terms in a proportion

is equal to the product of the extremes.

Find the fourth term in a proportion if the first three terms are 10, 16 and 20

respectively.

Answer: Five books wouldcost Php 500.00

VARIATION CONSTANT β a quantity whose

value does not change.

VARIABLE β quantity whose value is changing.

Direct Variation(Direct Proportion)

Direct Variation:π=ππ

Constant of VariationDependent Variable

Independent Variable

Direct Variation:π=ππ

y varies directly as x Y is directly proportional to

x

Read as:

Step 1: Solve the Constant of Variation.

How much would it cost you to buy 7 similar books if 3 books cost Php300.00?

Step 2: Substitute the value of k in y=kx.

How much would it cost you to buy 7 similar books if 3 books cost Php300.00?

Use this equation to solve the problem.

Step 3: Substitute the other given to the new equation.

How much would it cost you to buy 7 similar books if 3 books cost Php300.00?

7 similar books would

costPhp 700.00

Direct Variation:

As x increases, y increases As x decreases, y

decreases

Solution:

If y varies directly as x, and y = 25 and x = 15, find y if x = 9.

The value of y is 15

if x = 9.

Solution:

If m is directly proportional to p, and m = 10 and p = 2, find m if p = 8.

The value of m is 40

if p = 8.

Solution:

The area of a square (A) varies directly as the square of its side (s). If the area of a

square is 16 while the side is 4, find the area whose side is 12.

The area of a

square is 144.

Solution:

The cost of rice C varies directly as the weight of rice in kilograms w. If 2 kg of rice cost Php 72.00, find the cost of 11 kg rice.

11 kg of rice cost

Php 396.00

Indirect Variation(Indirect Proportion)

Inverse Variationy varies inversely as x ifk 0

such that xy=k or y kx

Just as with direct variation, a proportion can be set up solve problems of indirect variation.

Find y when x=15, if y varies inversely as x and x=10 when y=12Solve by equation:

xyk1012k120k

xyk15y 120y 8

If N varies inversely as M, and N = 5 when M= 3, find N when M= 10.

(10)n = 15 (3)(5) = k

15 = k

Solveby equation: mn = k10n = 15

n = 3/2n = 15/1010 = 10

a. What is the constant of variation?

nΞΈ = kIf n = 4 when ΞΈ = 90Β°, find k.(4)(90Β°) = 360Β°

k = 360Β°

b. What is the value of ΞΈ where n = 36?

nΞΈ = k(36) Ξ = 360Β°
