Lesson 4: Identifying proportional relationships

# Proportional relationships: bananas

A proportionality problem about eating bananas.

## Want to join the conversation?

• I have four questions:
.When a problem is not proportional, do we just say it's not proportional and go on to the next question?
.What kind of relationship is it if it's not proportional?

.Could we still solve it even if it's not proportional?
. And why would he waste money on 100 bananas? :)
• 1. Since there's a way to solve nonproportional relationships, you would still solve it (in a graph or a table).
2. Non-proportional :)
3. Yes, assuming the problem still makes sense.
4. Maybe he really likes bananas and they were on sale if you got 100 of them? idk
• I didn't know eating bananas would be this hard
• so... he's food poisoning himself by eating 49-day-old bananas?
• Why don't nate's bananas go bad?
• he or she must've putted something or injected something to keep the bananas healthy
• Hate to break it to you, Nate, but banana rots in a week or so if not eaten...
• to many bananas
• i have a bone to pick w khan academy equations cause who has 100 bananas
• A grocery store, a zoo, a banana picker, ...
