### Kimmie's scribe =)

Today in math class Mr.H gave us a work sheet.
<-----

First Mr.H gave us a bag of papers that had pics of fraction, fractions, decimals, and percents. And we had to put them in order. As it is shown. After we had show it to Mr.H or Mr.Hanly. Then we had to write and draw the things on the paper. Then we had to explain our reasoning (across and down) as to why we put the symbols where we did. We had to do this in the justify row and the justify column. As it is shown in the picture. And don't forget to give this assignment a name. After we were done we had to take notes.

The notes:
Ratios tell how one number is related to another number. A ratio may be written as A:B or phrase "A to B." A ratio of 1:5 says that the second number is five times as large as the first. The following steps will allow determination of a number and teh ratio between the number is given.

Example: Determine the value of B if A=16 and the ratio of A:B = 2:5.

-Determine how many times the variable divisible by the corresponding portion of ratio (6/2=3).
-Multiply this number by the portion of the ratio representing b (3*5=15).
-Therefore if the ratio is A:b is 2:5, A=6 then B=15.

Homework:
If you didn't hand in the square roots sheets,tests with corrections, and the pink paper then hand it tomorrow.
On the sheet of paper that Mr.H gave us. Add in a row going down on ratios.

The Next scribe will be Matthew Q.
