## Teaching Solving Proportion Worksheets

- Proportion is classified into two types. They are: inverse proportions and direct proportions.
- Direct Proportion: The direct relationship between two different quantities is known as direct proportion. For example, if the quantity of A increases, the quantity of B also increases.
- Inverse Proportion: The inverse relationship between two different quantities is known as inverse proportion. For example, if the quantity of A increases, the quantity of B decreases.

Proportion = a : b :: c : d = a/b = c/d |

Let us look at the given example mentioned below to understand more about proportion.

Q. Amrita runs 4 miles in 40 minutes. At this rate, how far can amrita run in 60 minutes?

Solution:

Here,

Let x be the number of miles, she can run in 40 minutes.

It is given that running 4 miles in 40 minutes is the same as running x miles in 60 minutes.

Equation = 4 / 40 = x / 60

40 x = 240.

X = 240 / 40 = 6 miles.

Hence, Amrita can run 6 miles in 60 minutes.
