Jim's alien post

How I stopped an alien invasion

A Alien plant was invaded and some aliens got off there plant before it was destroyed. When the alien leader was asking where to go his crew said "lets go to earth!" The aliens threatened and took over earth. The only way to stop them was to solve an proportion question.

Walter makes his own oil and vinegar dressing. His recipe calls for 175 ML of vinegar. What amount of vinegar does he need to mix with 300 ML of olive oil?

answer: 175ml/50ml= 30ml/x ml

a baseball player has a home run to strikeout ratio of 3:17. How many home runs should he hit if he strikes out 187 times?

answer: 3 home runs/17 strikeouts = x home runs/187 strikeouts

Two quarters have the same value as ten nickels. What is the value of 5 quarters in nickels?

25 nickels

Yay the aliens got defeated with our large brains! :D
