*Part One*

**Part Two**

__Part Three:__#### What are the three ways you can prove that equivalent ratio statements are true?

**-3/4 = 12/16**> if you multiply 3 and 4 by 4 you get 12 and 16 ( 3x4= 12 & 4x4=16) this is the

horizontal method.

<<< or cross multiply

-For the statement 4/9 = 16/32, it is false, 4x4 does equal 16 but 9x4 equals 36. Whatever you do to one side, you do to the other.

__Part Four:__

__Part Five__- Does this seem fair?
- With what you know about
**proportion**look and read what is in the image above. Does it seem just and fair? - Why have you made this choice?
- What would you have done if you were the judge?

- No it does not seem fair.
- stealing 3 billion dollars compared to 100 dollars is a HUGE difference.
- in the first place the homeless man stole only 100 dollars and confessed! 15 years compares to 3 is very different!
- If i was the Judge I'd send the CEO to prison for 15 years and maybe the homeless man for a few months at the most! all though he IS homeless he has to suffer the consequences but 15 years is just ridiculous

__Bonus__How tall is the tree on the right of the boy.

The height of the average boy is about 5'2 -ish. You could fit about Three of him on the tree.

5.2x3= 15.6. I think the tree is roughly 15.6 ft tall.
