### Gabbey's Proportion Post

Part 1:
Ratio:

Rate:

Proportion:
Part 2: 1.) 5 hours to travel 360 kilometers is about _____km/h.

2.) Emma saves 28 cents of every dollar that she earns.  Emma earned \$75 last week.  How much money did Emma save last week?
Part 3: 3/4 = 12/16 or 4/9 = 16/32
Part 4: 1. Does this seem fair?  -I think it seems quite fair but at the same time, it isn't.  2. With what you know about proportion look and read what is in the image above.  Does it seem just and fair?  -I don't think it was fair for the man.  3. Why have you made this choice? -I made this choice because the person who stole \$3 billion was only sentenced for 3 years while the homeless man who only stole \$100 was sentenced for 15 years.  4. What would you have done if you were the judge?-If I was the judge, I would have put the homeless man in jail for only a few years, because he really needed the money, but it was still wrong to steal. Then, I would have kept the person from the CEO for quite a long time.

1. For 3 stars, I think I did good on my explanation, how I got the answer and how it's easy to understand. And for the wish, I think I need to put pictures for examples.
