TN.6.RP. Ratios and Proportional Relationships (RP)
6.RP.A. Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems.
6.RP.A.1. Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example, the ratio of wings to beaks in a bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak. Another example could be for every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes
6.RP.A.3. Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems (e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations).
6.RP.A.3.a. Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.
