A proportional relationship between the number of pounds of cabbage (x) and the price in dollars (y) is graphed, and the ordered pair (5, 2) is on the graphed line.
Part A: What is the price of 1 pound of cabbage? Show your work, including the proportion you used to determine the price.
Part B: What does the ordered pair (10, 4) on the graph represent? Explain in words.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(5,2) means 5 pounds of cabbage costs $2. so to get 1 pound you divide the weight of cabbage by 5. then to get the price of 1 pound you divide the price by 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can write the subsequent proportion: \[\Large 2:5 = p:1\] p is the unit price

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hint: if 5 pounds of cabbage cost 2 dollars, then 1 pound of cabbage costs 2/5 dollars

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we can write this formula: \[p = \frac{2}{5}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now, if we apply the fundamental property to this proportion: \[2:5 = p:1\] we get: \[5p = 2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0next I divide both sides of that last formula, by 5, so I can write: dw:1432753316992:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is the same equation which I wrote before, at the beginning. So we can conclude, that the proportion: \[2:5 = p:1\] is the right proportion

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a possible statement is: "since 5 pounds of cabbage cost 2 dollars, then 1 pound of cabbage costs 2/5 of dollars, or 40 cent"
