Ratio Tables and Graphs

Ms. Lopez sells muffins at her bakery. She sells them in packages.

She uses a ratio table to determine the number of packages she will need for different numbers of muffins. The table she uses shows equivalent ratios of number of packages to number of muffins.

She can also use a graph to show this information.

Complete the ratio table with your class.

Using the graph on the handout, graph paper, or a graphing tool, plot all the points in the ratio table on a graph.

Examine the graph. How is the information in the ratio table represented in the graph?
