**3.1 Representing Proportional Relationships**

Question 1.

Find the constant of proportionality for the table of values.

Answer:

\(\frac{3}{2}\) = 1.5

\(\frac{4.5}{3}\) = \(\frac{3}{2}\) = 1.5

\(\frac{6}{4}\) = \(\frac{3}{2}\) = 1.5

\(\frac{7.5}{5}\) = \(\frac{3}{2}\) = 1.5

Therefore the constant of proportionality is 1.5

The constant of proportionality is 1.5.

Question 2.

Phil is riding his bike. He rides 25 miles in 2 hours, 37.5 miles in 3 hours, and 50 miles in 4 hours. Find the constant of proportionality and write an equation to describe the situation.

Answer:

Let’s first find the tabLe of the given situation:

The constant of proportionality is 12.5

An equation to describe the situation is y = 12.5x where y is the distance and æ the time.

\(\frac{25}{2}\) = 12.5

\(\frac{37.5}{3}\) = \(\frac{25}{2}\) = 12.5

\(\frac{50}{4}\) = \(\frac{25}{2}\) = 12.5

The constant of proportionality is 12.5.

An equation to describe the situation is y = 12.5x where y is the distance and x the time

Constant of proportionality is 12.5, and the equation y = 12.5x

**3.2 Rate of Change and Slope**

**Find the slope of each tine.**

Question 3.

Answer:

We choose two points on the line and we find the change in y-values and the change in x-values as we move from

one point to the other.

rise = +3, since we move up

run = +1, since we move right

Therefore,

slope = \(\frac{+3}{+1}\)

slope = 3

Question 4.

Answer:

Using the graph find 2 points that are on the given line, for example: (0, 0) and (1, -5). Now find the slope

Slope = \(\frac{-5-0}{1-0}\) = -5

The slope is —5.

**3.3 Interpreting the Unit Rate as Slope**

Question 5.

What is the slope of the data in the table?

Answer:

**3.4 Direct Variation**

Question 6.

A wheelchair ramp rises 2.25 feet for every 25 feet of horizontal distance it covers. What is the slope of the ramp? ________

Question 1.

Lupe’s heart beats 288 times in 4 minutes. Which equation represents the number of times her heart beats per minute?

(A) y = \(\frac{1}{288}\)x

(B) y = \(\frac{1}{72}\)x

(C) y = 72x

(D) y = 288x

Answer:

Question 2.

Prasert earns $9 an hour. Which table represents this proportional relationship?

Answer:

(A)

Explanation:

y = 9x Relationship representing earning at $9 per hr. where x is the number of hour

y = 9(2) = 18 When x = 2, 3, 4, 6, 8

y = 9(3) = 27

y = 9(4) = 36

y = 9(6) = 54

y = 9(8) = 72

Table $A$ represents the situation

Question 3.

A factory produces widgets at a constant rate. After 4 hours, 3,120 widgets have been produced. At what rate are the widgets being produced?

(A) 630 widgets per hour

(B) 708 widgets per hour

(C) 780 widgets per hour

(D) 1,365 widgets per hour

Answer:

(C) 780 widgets per hour

Explanation:

Let’s denote with x the change ¡n time (hours) and with y the change in the number of widgets produced. We

know that x = 4 and y = 3120. To find the rate of change at which the widgets are being produced, we have:

rate = \(\frac{y}{x}\)

= \(\frac{3120}{4}\)

= 780

In conclusion, 780 widgets are produced every hour.

Question 4.

A full lake begins dropping at a constant rate. After 4 weeks it has dropped 3 feet. What is the unit rate of change in the lake’s level compared to its full level?

(A) 0.75 feet per week

(B) 1.33 feet perweek

(C) -0.75 feet per week

(D) -1.33 feet per week

Answer:

(A) 0.75 feet per week

Explanation:

\(\frac{3}{4}\) = 0.75 Find the unit rate by

The lake leaks at $0.75$ feet per week

Question 5.

What is the slope of the line below?

(A) -2

(B) – \(\frac{1}{2}\)

(C) \(\frac{1}{2}\)

(D) 2

Answer:

(B) – \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Explanation:

Using the graph find two points on the line. For exampLe: (3, 0) and (-3, 3). Now using those two points cal.cutate

the slope:

Slope = \(\frac{0-3}{3-(-3)}\) = \(\frac{-3}{6}\) = –\(\frac{1}{2}\)

Question 6.

Jim earns $41.25 in 5 hours. Susan earns $30.00 in 4 hours. Pierre’s hourly rate is less than Jim’s, but more than Susan’s. What is his hourly rate?

(A) $6.50

(B) $7.75

(C) $7.35

(D) $8.25

Answer:

(B) $7.75

Explanation:

\(\frac{41.25}{5}\) = 8.25 Unit rate is given by

Jim’s unit rate is $\$8.25$per hr$

$\dfrac{30}{4} = 7.5$ $Susan’s unit

rate is$\$7.5$ per hr

Pierre’s hourly rate = $7.75 per hour Pierre’s hourly rate is less than Jim’s but more than Susan’s

7.5 < x < 8.25
