## HMH Into Math Grade 6 Module 7 Lesson 1 Answer Key Understand, Express, and Compare Percent Ratios

I Can convert ratios to percents by applying one strategy. A race car uses 2 gallons of gas to travel 25 miles. How many miles can the race car travel on 8 gallons of gas?  100 miles the race car travel on 8 gallons of gas,

Explanation:
Given a race car uses 2 gallons of gas to travel 25 miles.
Number of miles can the race car travel on 8 gallons of gas is as ratios it is 2: 8 :: 25 : x, 2x = 8 X 25, 2x = 200, so x = 200/2  = 100 miles.

Turn and Talk How can you use the ratio of 2 gallons of gas to 25 miles to write a ratio for the number of miles the race car travels on 1 gallon of gas? How could this be useful?
2 : 1 :: 25 : x,

Explanation:
Using 2 gallons of gas to 25 miles only we can write a ratio for the number of miles the race car travels on 1 gallon of gas if it is x so the ratio is 2 : 1 :: 25 : x, As a  ratio is a comparison of two or more numbers that indicates their sizes in relation to each other. A ratio compares two quantities by division, with the dividend or number being divided termed the antecedent and the divisor or number that is dividing termed the consequent.

Connect to Vocabulary
A percent is a ratio that compares a number to 100. It is represented by the percent symbol, %.

A. Write a ratio that shows how much each trainer earns from a dollar.
Caleb: : 100
Tillie: : 100
Eleanor: : 100
Caleb: 20 : 100, Tillie:  30 : 100, Eleanor: 50 : 100,

Explaantion:
Given Eleanor, Tillie, and Caleb earn money training dogs to surf.
For every dollar they earn, Caleb gets 20 cents, Tillie gets 30 cents and Eleanor gets 50 cents.
Ratio showing how much each trainer earns from a dollar is Caleb: 20 : 100,
Tillie:  30 : 100, Eleanor: 50 : 100.

B. Caleb’s portion of each dollar earned is shaded on the 10 × 10 grid. How many boxes do you need to shade to represent Tillie’s portion? Shade in Tillie’s portion of each dollar on the grid.  Explanation:
Boxes do I need to shade to represent Tillie’s portion is 30,
Shaded in Tillie’s portion of each dollar on the grid as shown above.

C. A percent is a part-to-whole ratio with a whole of 100. You can write 25% as 25 : 100 or $$\frac{25}{100}$$ Write percents to represent the amounts Caleb and Tillie earn from each dollar. Explain how you found them.
__________________________
__________________________
__________________________
__________________________
Caleb : 20 : 100 or $$\frac{20}{100}$$, Tillie : 30 : 100 or $$\frac{30}{100}$$,

Explanation:
Given Tillie and Caleb earn money training dogs to surf.
For every dollar they earn, Caleb gets 20 cents, Tillie gets 30 cents,
Therefore the percents to represent the amounts Caleb and Tillie earn from each dollar is
Caleb : 20 : 100 or $$\frac{20}{100}$$, Tillie : 30 : 100 or $$\frac{30}{100}$$.

D. What does the part of the grid that isn’t shaded represent? Write a percent to represent this portion of the grid.
__________________________
__________________________
__________________________
If 50% is used means out 100 only 50 boxes are shaded that part is utilized represents out of 100,
50 are used rest 100-50 = 50 boxes are not used and its percent is 50%.

Turn and Talk Devon says that the ratios 2:10, 3:10, and 5:10 represent Caleb’s, Tulle’s, and Eleanor’s portions. Is Devon right? If so, explain how he found these ratios, If not, explain Devon’s error.
Yes Devon is right,

Explanation:
Given Devon says that the ratios 2:10, 3:10, and 5:10 represent Caleb’s, Tulle’s, and Eleanor’s portions. Yes Devon is right he divided the portions of ratios and took out common factors and
gave the remaining rest result.

2. A survey says that 13 out of 20 people have pets. Write this ratio as a percent.

A. One way to write a ratio as a percent is to use a table. Complete the table to write equivalent ratios for the ratio 13:20.  Explanation:

B. Use the table to write the percent of people who own pets. What is $$\frac{13}{20}$$ as a percent? Explain.
65%,

Explanation:
The percent for $$\frac{13}{20}$$ X 100 = 65%.

C. You also can use equivalent ratios to find the percent. What is $$\frac{13}{20}$$ as a percent?  65%,

Explanation:
$$\frac{13}{20}$$ as a percent is 65%.

Turn and Talk Could you use any of the ratios in the table to find the percent?
13:20, 26:40, 39:60, 52:80 and 65 : 100 all have 65%,

Explanation:
Yes, I can use the ratios in the table to find the percent as all ratios 13:20, 26:40, 39:60, 52:80 and 65 : 100 have 65%, If $$\frac{13}{20}$$ X 100 = 65%, $$\frac{26}{40}$$ x 100 = 65%,
$$\frac{39}{60}$$ X 100 = 65%, $$\frac{52}{80}$$ X 100 = 65%,
$$\frac{65}{100}$$ X 100 = 65%.

D. Who received the higher score?
__________________
Vince,

Explanation:
Vince received the higher score 82.5%.

Turn and Talk How else could you find out who had the higher score?
Comparing decimals of John and Vince,

Explanation:
As John scored $$\frac{20}{25}$$ we get  0.8 and Vince received 82.5% we divide by 100 to get decimal as $$\frac{82.5}{100}$$ = 0.825 now comparing decimals 0.825 > 0.8 so Vince scored higher.
