Question Writing equivalent ratios and ordered pairs Gallons 1 2 3 Quarts 4 8 12 which ordered pairs represents the equivalent ratios in the table? (1,2) (1,4) (2,8) (4,1) (3,12)

Step-by-step explanation: gallons to quarts have the ratio 1:4. there are 4 quarts in a gallon (hence the name of quarts by the way). so, the question is really, which order pair have also a 1:4 ratio between x and y ? (1, 4) (2, 8) (3, 12) the (4, 1) would represent a 4:1 ratio. and as you know, 4/1 is different to 1/4. a ratio is nothing else than a fraction. just the “whole” is different. the pure fraction 1/4 means that the whole is 4/4, has 4 times 1/4. a ratio 1:4 (you can also write as 1/4) means that the whole has 5 (1+4) parts. other than that they are compared and calculated with the same way as normal fractions.
