Graphs are used to study the relationship between 2 things so you can see what the relationship is.
Unrelated: 2 items that are not associated. Ex. Hair color is unrelated to shoe size
Directly related/proportional: 2 items that are associated such that when one item increases, the other increases. The graph of 2 directly related items extends from lower left to upper right. Ex. Clothing size is directly related to one’s weight.
Related/ proportional: Is a relationship but can’t be measured. 2 items that are associated or affiliated however the relationship between the items does not have to be specified.
Inversely related/proportional: 2 items are associated such that when one item increases, the other decreases. The graph of 2 inversely related items extends from upper left to lower right. Ex. Golf score is inversely related to skill.
Reciprocal relationship: 2 numbers multiplied together, the result is 1. This is a special form of inverse relationship. Reciprocal numbers are inverse because when one increases, the other decreases. Ex. 10/1 x 1/10=1
All numerical values must have corresponding units. A number alone, without units, is ambiguous and can create uncertainty. Percents (%) don’t have units. To change units from one form to another is called unit conversion.
