#### Understanding

Students should recognize that the rows (or columns) of a ratio table are some (positive rational) multiple of each other. This will be important when they begin to compare ratios.

### What to look for

Have students explain their strategies for solving problems involving equivalent ratios.### Sample Assessment

If Sara used 3 cups of pancake mix to make 24 pancakes, how many cups would she need to make 40 pancakes?

Answer: 3:24 is equivalent to 1:8, which is equivalent to 5:40. So, the answer is 5 cups of pancake mix.
