Graphing proportional relationships


Graph the line that represents a proportional relationship between d and t with the property that an increase of 5 units in t corresponds to an increase of 8 units in d.
What is the unit rate of change of d with respect to t? (That is, a change of 1 unit in t will correspond to a change of how many units in d?)
The unit rate is
  • Your answer should be
  • an integer, like 6
  • an exact decimal, like 0.75
  • a simplified proper fraction, like 3/5
  • a simplified improper fraction, like 7/4
  • a mixed number, like 1 3/4
Graph the relationship.
