Given any representation of a proportional relationship, translate the representation to a written description, table or equation.
The written description, there are 60 minutes in 1 hour, can be represented as the equation m=60h.
Example: Gina works as a babysitter and earns $9 per hour. She would like to earn $100 to buy a new tennis racket. Gina wants to know how many hours she needs to work. She can use the equation , where e is the amount of money earned, h is the number of hours worked and is the constant of proportionality.
Given representations are limited to a written description, graph, table or equation.
Clarification 2: Instruction includes equations of proportional relationships in the form of y=px, where p is the constant of proportionality.
