I have $4 so, I can buy......... Wait, how many can I buy?
I have $2 so, I can buy 5 candies.
Great that brings us to our next lesson. I want to find out how many candies I can buy with $4. I know I can get 5 candies for $2. Lets work this problem 2/5 = 4/n 4 divided by 2 is 2. so for the numerator the equation would be 2 times 2 = 4. we have to remeber to do the same to the denominators so 5 times 2 = 10 Olivia can buy 10 candies
Aw man! I can only get 6 candies.
Yay! 10 candies!
Great now you know about Ratios, Rates and Proportions. Enjoy your candies!
