7.RP.A.2a

Decide whether two quantities are in a proportional relationship, e.g., by testing for equivalent ratios in a table or graphing on a coordinate plane and observing whether the graph is a straight line through the origin.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.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 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."*5.NF.B.4a

Interpret the product (*a*/*b*) ×*q*as*a*parts of a partition of*q*into*b*equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of operations*a*×*q*÷*b*.*For example, use a visual fraction model to show (2/3) × 4 = 8/3, and create a story context for this equation. Do the same with (2/3) × (4/5) = 8/15. (In general, (a/b) × (c/d) = ac/bd.)*
