## Spectrum Math Grade 7 Chapter 4 Lesson 4.2 Testing Proportional Relationships Answers Key

Relationships are proportional if they indicate the relationship between values stays constant. Graphing values can help determine if the relationship is proportional.

Step 1: Graph each point on a grid.

Step 2: Connect the points.

Step 3: Decide if the line is straight or not.

If the line connecting points on a grid is straight, the relationship between the quantities is proportional.

**Graph the points to determine if the relationship in the table is proportional.**

Question 1.

a.

Proportional? ______

Answer: Yes

Relationships are proportional if they indicate the relationship between values stays constant. Graphing values can help determine if the relationship is proportional.

Step 1: Graph each point on a grid.

A ratio is a comparison of two numbers. A proportion expresses the equality of two ratios.

A ratio can be expressed as 1 to 2, 1:2, or \(\frac{1}{2}\), and it means that for every 1 of the first item, there are 2 of the other item.

Cross-multiply to determine if two ratios are equal.

\(\frac{2}{4}\), \(\frac{3}{6}\) 2 × 6 = 12 3 × 4 = 12 \(\frac{2}{4}\) = \(\frac{3}{6}\)

**Circle the ratios that are equal. Show your work.**
