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
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
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?
The sugar content is different in each beverage yeah
Ahh okay thank you soo much UnkleRhaukus!!!
I yam happy to help
Is there anyway I can notify you if I ever need future help?
i use this site often, hopefully i will find your questions as they arise
Okay that's wonderful!..you will probably be seeing a lot of questions from me on here hah..Thanks again! :D
