## Teaching Interpreting Proportional Relationships Easily

• To check whether two quantities are proportional or not, always find the ratio between them.

• If the ratio is equal, then they are in a proportional relationship or constant of proportionality.

• If two quantities are proportional to each other, they are defined as y = kx.

Here is an example to solve a problem on interpreting proportional relationships. Let’s look at the given example mentioned below to understand more about the concept.

Q.

Interpret the Proportional Relationship for the above table.

Step 1: Apply the equation = y = kx.

Step 2: To find the constant of proportionality, find the ratio between the number of days by the number of articles.

K = y/x = 9 / 3 = 3, 18 / 6 = 3, 27 / 9 = 3.
