### Power Rangers vs Aliens

Power Rangers you have to stop the alien scouts that the evil Snorlax has sent. Go infiltrate thier camp and destroy their communications device by putting 3 proportion question viruses in them. Then eliminate them.

Here are the 3 proportion questions....oh no! I forgot what the answers are. You'll have to answer them when you put them into their system.

Question #1

Delia was paid \$35 for 5 hours of babysitting. How much should she recieve for 3 hours? Use a unit rate to find the answer.

Unit rate is when you find the second unit of measurement, which is the hours, and turn that number into one. That's why I divided the number by itself (divide by 5 in the \$ side, because what you do to your right you must do to your left). Which got me one. Then I multiply it by the desired amount, which is 3 (multiply by 3 the \$7). This should have gotten you, \$21 per 3 hours.

Question #2

At an amusement park, a new thrill ride was introduced. It costs \$7.50 for 3 rides on the Wild Slider.

a) What is the Wild Slider's unit rate per ride?

Now were trying to find the unit rate, so divide 3 by itself and also divide 7.50 by 3.

b)At this rate, what would it cost for 18 rides on Wild Slider? Determine the answer 2 different ways.

From what the question gave us, we multiply 3 by 6 to get 18 rides and multiply 7.50 to get 45

From the a), we multiply 1 by 18 to get 18 and ,ultiply 2.50 by 18 to get 45.

Question 3

David can saw a log into 3 pieces in 7 minutes. If he continues sawing at a constant rate, how long will it take him to saw a similar log into 6 pieces?

All we need is a partner for 6. We know that 6 belongs in the logs, so we're missing minutes. First we need to find the relationship of 3 and 6. We know that 3 x 2 is 6 so we must do that to the other side to get the minutes for 6 pieces of logs.

And while the other rangers where holding off the scout's lackies, the virus had worked and destroyed the communications device. Now all that's left are the scouts.

The rangers had combined their weapons and blew up the scout's and their lackies.

And we end this scribepost with the power rangers theme song:

Go, go Power Rangers!
Go, go Power Rangers!
Go, go Power Rangers! Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!

Go, go Power Rangers!
Go, go Power Rangers!

Go, go Power Rangers! Mighty Morphin Power Rangers!
