### Telisa's Graphing, October 30,2009

Graphing

Sorry for this being so late

These are the definitions for the different types of graphs that we have used...

Legend * Heading, Definition, Explanation *

Bar Graph - Are best for comparing data across categories.

Double Bar Graph - Are best for comparing two sets of data.

Circle Graph - Are best used for comparing categories to the whole using percents ( % )

Line graph - Are best for showing changes in data over time.

Pictograph - are best for comparing data that can easily counted and represented using symbols.

~~~~~~~~~~ Other Definition's

Interval - The spread between the smallest and the largest number in a set of data.

Trend - The general direction that a line graph is going ( ex . Increasing / Decreasing)

Distort - means to change the appearance or twist the meaning of something in a way that is misleading. ( a break in the y axis represented by * ≥ * means that the length of the axis has been shortened)

Please Comment and tell me of any errors

### Runcel's four 4's

Here are some way how to use four4's :)

4+4-4-4=0

4-4-4+4=0

(4-4)-4+4=0

-they all have the same answer:)

4+4-4-4=0

4-4-4+4=0

### Telisa's Bob 1 & 2, ratio's, October 30, 2009

Bob #1 ...

This is My Bob, Sorry for it being late ...

Legend * Headings, Definitions, Answers / work, My notes, questions. *

Three Term ( part ) Ratio - comparing three quantities measured in the same units.

Red to Blue to all

2 : 3 : 12

~~~~~

Blue to Silver to Purple

3 : 1 : 1

~~~~~~~~~ Part to Part Ratio : Comparing one part of a group to another part of the same group

Red to Green

2 : 3

~~~~~

Silver to Blue

1 : 3

~~~~~

Gold to Red

1 : 2

~~~~~~~~~~~~Part to Whole Ratio : Comparing one part of a group to the whole group

Blue to all

3 : 12

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Red to all

2 : 12

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Apparently I am supposed to choose one of the ratios I just did and show it in ...

Ratio - 3 : 12

Ratio Notation - three to twelve or Blue to all

Fraction - 3 / 12 or Blue / all

Decimal - 0.25

Percent - 25 %

My three question's are ..

1) If I double the amount of crayons I have then what will the ratio of Blue, Red, Green to all be.

2) What would the percent be of the ratio 7 : 140.

3) What is the decimal answer for 9 : 58.

~~~~~~

Bob #2

What Did you get wrong on the Test.. How can you improve...

1) Most of my faults were because i did not convert the ratios to there lowest terms.

The reason why i had trouble with this was because Mr.Harbeck told us to only convert it to lowest terms if the question said to and because of that I did not convert it unless it said to.

2) The only question i had a real problem's with was # 12, 13, and 14.

In a group of 84 students surveyed, the ratio of student preferenceis seven oatmeal eaters to four granola eaters to three toasted O eaters.

12. Of the 84 students, how many prefur oatmeal.

13. Of the 84students, how many prefur granola.

14. what percent ( to one decimal place ) of the group prefurs Toasted O's .

Another Question that gave me trouble was ...

Write each ratio in lowest terms,

8 : 32 ~~~~

10 : 80 ~~~~

5 : 125 ~~~~

18 : 27 ~~~~

Thank You for reading my Post ...Please Comment

### Telisa's Four4's October 30, 2009

Even though I was not here for the four4's lesson I think that i have grasped the concept of what I am supposed to do.

Why are 4÷4 + ( 4÷4 ) = 2, is the same as 4/4 = 4/4 =2.

The traditional ÷ sign can also be represented as /.

The / may also be used as a fraction sign instead of the – sign.

when you do this you get the same answer because.

The two dots on a divide sign are representatives of the numbers you are dividing. In a fraction instead of dots the numbers are being show, this is one of the relations between division and fractions.

### Jennifer's Rate Growing Post

Hello Everyone! Today I will show you about ratios and rates. But fist I have to define them. (Sorry If he Picture is too wide! If you want to see the picture, right click, Properties, Look at Location, (For Firefox) (Address For Internet) Copy url and paste on a new window to see the full picture)

Ratio - Compares to quantites measured in the same units

Rate - Compares to quantites in different units.

Next I have to find out the difference between ratio and rate.

Well first of all, ratio only compares quantites in the same units. Rate on the other hand compares different units. So pretty much the difference is that, rate compares different units, and ratio compares the same units.

Now I have to choose a question on page 60 and answer that question. So I choose question 6.

6. Gina earns $78.00 for working 6h. Asad makes $192.50 after working 14h. Determine each person's unit rate of pay. Who has a greater hourly rate of pay? So now I know now that I have to find out which person has a greater pay in one hour. So I have to use a ratio table for this.

So Gina makes $13.00 per hour and Asad makes $13.75 per hour. Asad has the greater pay within one hour.

So Gina makes $13.00 per hour and Asad makes $13.75 per hour. Asad has the greater pay within one hour.

So now I have so do another question but this time on page 61. I'm going to do question 12.

12. The rate at which glaciers melt is increasing globally. The Saskatchewan Glacier near Banff has receded 1.5 km in the last 75 years. The Peyto Glacicer shown below receded 1320 m from 1923 to 1993. Which glacier had the greater annual rate of melting?

So the first thing I need to know is that I have to find out the years for the Peyto Glacier. So i've did 1993 - 1923 equals 70 years. I'll do a ratio to show you what i've did.

So the first thing I need to know is that I have to find out the years for the Peyto Glacier. So i've did 1993 - 1923 equals 70 years. I'll do a ratio to show you what i've did.

So for the first ratio is the Peyto Glacier. Their unit rate is 20m per year. The second ratio is the Saskatchewan Glacier from Banff. Since the 1.5km didn't work so well, I had to convert it into km. (that would be 1500) And that worked! So the unit rate for this is 20m per year.

And Finally, I have to make up a question using a rate. Which that may be hard.

So my question is.. At Seven-Eleven, there are 3 diffrent sizes of slurpee. The 250ml/small slurpee cost $1.00. The 500ml/medium size slurpee cost $1.50. And The 1000ml/Large size would cost $2.00. Which Slurpee size is the better buy? Show your work!

So this question reminds me of that Salsa question I did in math class! So the first thing I've did was... I have to find out the unit price for each of these Slurpee sizes! So I drew ratio tables!

So now that I've had found out their unit prices, I find out which of them had the lowest unit price. (Which would be the Large one) So The Large Slurpee would be the better buy is because it have the lowest unit price!

And Finally, I have to make up a question using a rate. Which that may be hard.

So at first I didn't really get it on how you like turn teaspoons into milliliters until I found a site that tells me about it. Or I divide everything by 2.5

2) What would the recipe look like if you had to only serve 1 person? Show your calculations.

### Hello!

Hello everybody!

This is Kim, your student mentor! Hope you all are having a great week!

I'm just wondering, what can I do to help you in this class? Do you have any ideas?

The site you guys have here looks pretty cool. I think math would have been easier for me in grade 8 if I had a cool website like this to keep notes organized. Do you guys like having class like this too?

Do you have any questions for me? I was thinking that I better make an effort to make myself known as me, instead of the crazy person who posts pirate videos.

Speaking of which, here is another one. Tell me what you think.

### bob2, ratio, late post, tamika 816

sorry its late. this is the second part to bob, on the test.

I got question 5 wrong:

Eric is able to stop 85% of the shots on goal. If he faces 27 shots on goal, how many goals would likely be scored on him?

a.3 b.4 c.9 d.15

To be honest at the time I had no idea what the answer was or how to get the answer. I guessed what the answer was I guessed c.9.

Later on at class I found out the answer and how to get it:

you just have to make a ratio table:

Another mistake I made was question 16:

You have a bag with one white ball, six red balls, eight green balls, and three purple balls. In lowest terms, what is the ratio of red balls to the whole bag of balls?

I put: 6:18 6÷6, 18÷6 the answer is 1:3. My mistake was that I didn't put a word ratio, the proper way would be:

red:total

1:3

I'll remember to put a word ratio next time.

here are questions I redid:

1-eric is able to stop the ball 80% of the shots on goal. if he faces 24 shots on goal, how many goals would likely go in?

I rounded the answer and it is 19

2-you have a bag with 3blue marbles, 4 green marbles and 7 purple marbles. what is the ratio for green marbles to total marbles.

A) green to total

4:14

thanks sorry its late mr h please still let me got to the dance:D

### BOB on Ratios by Gordon 8-16

Today Mr.H gave us some homework on ratios and a BOB so here it is.

We need to write a certain number of ratios about this picture.

First we need to make 3 Part to Part Patios

1. Vowels to Blue Letters

6 : 9

2. Blue Letters to Red Letters

9 : 6

3. Vowels to Red Letters

6 : 6

Next 2 Part to Total Ratios

1. Vowels to Total

6 : 15

2. Red Letters to Total

6 : 15

And Finally 2 Part to Part to Part Ratios

1. Vowels to Red Letters to Blue Letters

6 : 6 : 9

2. Green Letters to Blue Letters to Consonants

1 : 9 : 8

But were not quite done now I have to convert 1 of these fractions into a ratio notation, a fraction, a decimal, and a percent form.

I chose Vowels to Red Letters

Ratio Notation

6 : 6

Fraction

I'll re-write the word Ratio as well Vowels/Red Letters

6/6

Decimal

1.0

Percent

100%

Now heres how to make an equivalent ratio.

An equivalent ratio is a fraction that represents the the same ratio but in a simplified or multiplied form for example

6 : 6 can be represented as 3 : 3 or 12 : 12 or even as high as 6000 : 6000 as long as the amount the ratio represents does not change and it is a multiple or denominator of the original ratio for example 6 : 6 cannot be represented as 12 : 13

And I'm almost done I just have to give you guys 3 questions for you and me to answer in the comments .

1. Create 2 ratios involving consonants.

2. Create and equivalent ratio for the ratio 52 : 70 (but try not to put the same one as someone else)

3. What is the ratio of Red Letters, Blue Letters, to Total?

Don't Forget to study for the upcoming test and don't forget to comment.

Part 2

1. What were the mistakes you made on your test? Show examples of answers that were wrong. What was your mistake?How will you remember what to do in future tests?

I didn't read the questions properly and missed complete portions of the question, for example I missed the words "In lowest Terms" at least twice.

I will remember what to do on future tests by underlining importent parts of the questions and by studying harder.

I didn't read the questions properly and missed complete portions of the question, for example I missed the words "In lowest Terms" at least twice.

You write this as a fraction by putting the number on the left of the : on top and the right on the bottom. Every time you write a ratio as a fraction, you need to make a new word ratio. This is how it should look if it was a fraction:

Blue 5

------ --

Red 2

You can find a decimal by using the fraction. You can find a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator.This is how you can show how to get a decimal:

5/2=2.5 The decimal is 2.5

You can find percent by converting the decimal. Every whole number in the decimal equals 100%. every tenth equals 10%, and every hundredth equals 1%.If the decimal has a number less then one hundredth, you have to round to the nearest hundredth.

2.5 = 200%+50%

2.5=250%

You can find equivalent ratios by multiplying or dividing the original numbers in a ratio.

**3 questions**

1. One smoothie is made out of 2 strawberries, 1 banana and 4 cups of milk.

If you drank 2 smoothies, how much bananas would you have drank compared to strawberries? Don't simplify your answer.

2.A very successful farm has 12 cows, 5 pigs and 3 chickens.

The owner of the farm is looking to extend the capacity of the farm by 75%. How much cows compared to chickens and pigs should he get? Don't simplify your answer.

3. A box has 10 pencil crayons. 80 percent of them are purple, 5 percent of them are yellow and 15 percent of them are green. How much purple compared to yellow compared to green pencil crayons are in the box? Simplify your answer.

Part 2:

Some mistakes on my test:

For question 17, I said that there was no equivalent scored by to scored against ratio. I thought this because none of the ratios could be simplified to become equivalent. I was wrong because if you divide 10 and 8, you get the same answer as 115 and 92. When you divide equivalent ratios, you get the same answer. I will remember to divide ratios to find out if they are equivalent to other ratios.

Rewrite 2 questions that gave you difficulty with different numbers. Answer the questions correctly in the comments to your blog. Encourage others to participate at your blog by getting them to answer your questions:

3. A normal deck of playing cards has 52 cards in four suits (clubs, diamonds, hearts,spades) of 13 cards each. Two of the suits are black and two of the suits are red. The ratio of black cards to the total deck is.

BOB2

1) What were the mistakes I made one the test..

a) One mistake was, I didn't check over my answers.. Cause time was running out when I finished .

b) I didn't read the questions twice that's why I got some answers wrong.

c) I miscalculated a few questions..

How will I remember this for future tests?

I'll double check my answers, read over the questions that were difficult and triple check my calculations.

2 questions that were difficult for me were

1a) In a student election Carol gets 60% of the votes . If there were 485 votes cast,

how many votes did Carol get?

1B) Use the data in the table below to determine which sports teams have equivalent scored by to scored against ratios

### BOB, ratio, tamika816, oct.20

I grouped these crayons in 4 different groups. GREENS- spring green, yellow green, green. BLUES- cadet blue, turquoise blue, sky blue. REDS- salmon, wild strawberry. OTHER- silver, yellow orange, purple, gold.

decimal

0.5

percent

50%

Now I'm going to take OTHER to total and make an equivalent ratio.

An equivalent ratio is a ratio written in a lower term or a higher term.

To get a lower term you have to divide the numbers by any same number that will equal a whole number. To get a higher term you have to multiply the numbers by any same number. Example:

lower term 4:12= 2:6 I divided both numbers by 2.

higher term 4:12= 12:36 I multiplied both numbers by 3.

Here are 3 questions you should answer.

write blue to other as a fraction then write it 2 different ways.

write other to total as lowest term

Is greens to reds in the lowest term? Why?

Percent:

Equivalent Ratios:

Equivalent Ratios are created by multiplying or dividing each part of the ratio by the same number.

For example: 2:3 = 6:9

I got this answer by multiplying each part of the original ratio by 3, then recording my outcome.

2 x 3 = 6

3 x 3 = 9

6:9

In the same way, this number can be simplified. By using the same number, but different operation.

6 divided by 3 = 2

9 divided by 3 = 3

2:3

*****This is also how you know you did an equivalent fraction correctly

*****.

Here are your 3 questions:

1) Create 2 DIFFERENT ratios, using the SAME 3 colours.

2) What is the decimal form for the ratio

*yellow to blue?*3) Give to

*equivalent*ratios for the fraction 4/5.**HAVE FUN!!! :)**

Ok, it's time for part 2!

Here are the mistakes I made on my test: (Sorry Mr. Harbeck!)

1) Question #8: A picture frame has a width to length ratio of 5:7. If the width of the photo is 9 cm, the length of the photo is...

a) 11cm

b) 12.6cm

c) 14cm

d) 16cm

The correct answer is b. Because if you divide 5 by 7 you get o.71 and if you divide 9 by 12.6 you get o.71. Therefore they are equivalent ratios.

2) Question 10: A survey of students in the school found that 144 had Motorola cell phones, 60 had Sony phones, 48 had Nokia phones, and 36 had LG phones.

What percent of all of the phones were Motorola?

a) 14.4%

b) 25%

c) 50%

d) 77%

The correct answer is 50% because the sum of all of the phones is 288. If you divide that number by 2 you get 144. 288=100% 288/2=144 100/2=50.

3) Question #14: In a group of 84 students surveyed, the ratio of student preference is seven oatmeal eaters to four granola eaters to three toasted O eaters.

What percent (to one decimal place) of the group prefers toasted O's?

The correct answer is 28%. Because the amount of students who like toasted O's is 18. 84/18=4.67. 4.67 x 6=28.o2. (Rounded to one decimal place is 28.) I multiplied 4.67 by 6 because in order to get 18 students I had to multiply the simplified number of toasted O's eaters by 6.

An example of the wrong answer would be 15.1%. (That's what I put). Right now, I'm not really sure how I got that answer, but I will remember for future tests to do the right thing by reading the question more carefully.

Here are 2 questions to get your brains going! (They are from the test but use different numbers).

Eric is able to stop 58% of the shots on goal. If he faces 30 shots on goal, how many goals would likely be scored on him?
