Lesson Guide for Chapter 7: Ratio and Proportion
Write a proportion problem. Design the problem so that the solution is “Leslie would need 16 gal ofgasoline in order to travel 368 mi.” -Leslie drove from her house to the grocery store last monday the grocery store is 2.875 miles away from her house. She used 1/4 gallon of gas driving to the grocery and back home. At this rate how many gallons of gas would she use to drive to her parents house who lives 368 miles away? --I am not sure that I understand the question fully but I am going to give it a try:Leslie is planning on visiting her sister who lives 368 miles away. The car that Leslie is planning on driving to visit her sister tank only holds 16 gallon of gas. Leslie’s car gets 23 miles per gallon. How many times will Leslie need to stop to fill up? Crystal

Classical conditioning and operant conditioning are two ways in which learning occurs in some animals, including humans. Provide one example of each type of conditioning from your own life. Explain step-by-step how the conditioning occurred. What would it take to unlearn this behavior? Top of Form Question 1

You are a pronounced behaviorist. Which statement most closely aligns with your beliefs? -------------------------------------------------

| | Latent learning occurs without any direct reinforcement.| | | Operant conditioning uses consequences that the organism thinks are annoying or satisfying.| | | Learning includes not only changes in behavior, but also changes in thoughts and expectations.| | | Observable events and acts are the focus of psychological research.| 20 points

You are seeking to perform an experiment very similar to that of Pavlov. You begin by placing some drops of milk onto a cat's tongue, and you notice that she begins to salivate. After several trips to the lab, the cat begins to salivate after...

...Ratio and Proportion
• If 2 numbers are in ratio a: b then consider them as ax and bx (where x is the proportionality constant) and apply ax and bx in the given condition of the problem to proceed for answer
• Ratio can be applied between 2 units if and only if the same physical quantity is compared
• Length : length is correct
• Length : density is wrong
• Ratio can be made only after the units are compared in...

...Solving Proportions
Problem 1
Bear population. To estimate the size of the bear population on the Keweenaw Peninsula, conservationists captured, tagged, and released 50 bears. One year later, a random sample of 100 bears included only 2 tagged bears. What is the conservationist's estimate of the size of the bear population?
I think using a simple ratio equation would work here,
let b = bear population
=
cross multiply
2b = 50*100
2b=5000...

...The Golden Ratio: Natures Beautiful Proportion
At first glance of the title, many may wonder: What is the Golden Ratio? There are many names the Golden Ratio has been called including the Golden Angle, the Golden Section, the Divine Proportion, the Golden Cut, the Golden Number et cetera, but what is it and how is it useful for society today? One may have heard of the number π (Pi 3.14159265…) but less common is π’s...

...Proportions in mathematics can be viewed from a few perspectives. For instance, the proportionality of two variable values is determined by checking if one of the values is the product of the other value and some constant. In other words, two variable values (numbers or quantities) are proportional if their ratio is a constant, called the coefficient of proportionality or the proportionality constant. This is best explained using the linear equation:
y = k*x...

...Ratio analysis
Debt ratio
Debt ratio (2006-2007) = Total liabilities / Total assets = 10,170/12,064 = 0.84
Debt ratio (2007-2008) = 9,210/11,769 =
Debt ratio (2008-2009) = 10,003/11,229 =
Debt ratio (2009-2010) = 11,043/12,537 =
Current ratio
Current ratio (2006-2007) = Current assets / Current liabilities = 3,424/4,790 = 0.71
Current ratio (2007-2008) =...
