CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS PROPORTIONALITY QUESTIONS!!!?!? I have two sets of numbers: The question asked: Determine whether or not the sugar content is roughly proportional to the caloric value of the beverages. Mass percent Sugar Calories/mL A 2.8 % 0.2113 Cal/mL B 3.9 % 0 Cal/mL C 8.7 % 0.5072 Cal/mL Please please take me step by step on this,I am seriously finding this hard to understand, I haven't been able to find one decent explanation!!..... Thank You!!

    so "is the sugar content is roughly proportional to the caloric value" proportional means: that they both change together

    looking at a graph, we see that calories is not proportional because no straight line could be drawn that includes all the datum points

    Ahh i see...that makes sense. Why have people been telling me to divide the numbers is their another method in solving this?

    well i like the graph because i like visual representation. you can simple divide the values to see if you have a common ratio, A 2.8 : 0.21 ~13 B 3.9 : 0 ~n/a C 8.7 : 0.50 ~ 17.4 clearly 13, n/a , and 17.4 are not the same so there is not a common ration and their is no proportionality.. When their is a proportionality the ratios will be equivalent and will be equal to 'm' the gradient or slope of the straight line

    Wow you made me understand this really well!! , it also asks to explain any differences or similarities in the sugar content ..so because its not proportional their would only be differences right?
