**Kansas Academic Education Standards**. A proportion is a statement that two ratios are equal. A ratio is a pair of numbers used to show a comparison. To solve a proportion, calculate equivalent fractions in order to be sure the two fractions (ratios) are equal. Read More...

KS.6.RP. Ratios and Proportional Relationships

Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems.

6.RP.1. Use ratio language to describe a relationship between two quantities. Distinguish between part-to-part and part-to-whole relationships. For example, “The ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak.” “For every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes.”

6.RP.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 diagram, or using calculations.)

6.RP.3a. Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find the missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios. Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. For example, if it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours? At what rate were lawns being mowed?
