After this lesson, you will be able to transform ratio tables into equations.
The lesson begins by teaching you how to identify patterns in a ratio table and to determine the constant rate. It leads you to learn how to assign variables and set up the proportion to get the equation. It concludes with isolating the desired variable in the equation for ease of manipulation.
Learn about changing ratio tables to equations by understanding the balance of processes in the human body!
This video includes key concepts, notation, and vocabulary such as ratio (a relationship between two non-negative numbers, both of which are not zero); ratio table (a structured set of equivalent ratios); constant rate (the rate at which a quantity changes in relation to another is fixed or unchanging); proportion (two or more equivalent ratios); variable (a symbol, usually a letter, that is used to represent one or more values) and equation (a statement of equality between two quantities).
Before watching this video, you should already be familiar with ratio, ratio table, constant rate, variable, and equation.
After watching this video, you will be prepared to learn to solve real-world and mathematical problems involving unit rate, percent, and measurement conversion.
