Which graphs could represent a proportional relationship?
A lemonade recipe calls for \(\frac14\) cup of lemon juice for every cup of water.
- Use the table to answer these questions.
- What does \(x\) represent?
- What does \(y\) represent?
- Is there a proportional relationship between \(x\) and \(y\)?
- Plot the pairs in the table in a coordinate plane.
Select all the pieces of information that would tell you \(x\) and \(y\) have a proportional relationship. Let \(y\) represent the distance in meters between a rock and a turtle's current position and \(x\) represent the time in minutes the turtle has been moving.
\(y = 3x\)
After 4 minutes, the turtle has walked 12 feet away from the rock.
The turtle walks for a bit, then stops for a minute before walking again.
The turtle walks away from the rock at a constant rate.
Decide whether each table could represent a proportional relationship. If the relationship could be proportional, what would be the constant of proportionality?
