In a city far far away a man tries to find some COMICS!!!
Yay I found them, I need 20 comics and that costs $30 I need to know how many comics I can get with $40. In need to make a proportion, so I put 20 over 30 and set that equal to x over 40. Now I need to multiply 40 and 20 and then divide by 30 to get how many comics I can get with $40.
Hmmmmm what a wonderful day I wonder if there are any comics around here !!
That was fun now I have to find out how to get home. My car can drive 50 miles in 10 minutes. I need to figure out how much I can drive in 1 minute. So I have to use a Unit rate. I do this by putting 50 over 10 and set that equal to x over 1. Now I need to multiply 50 and 1 and then multiply by 10. This will give me the Unit rate.
I'm so excites to see my Pets. I have 4 dogs to 2 cats. This is called a ratio because I'm comparing both my dogs and my cats.
