    proportional relationships are relationships between two equal ratios. For example, oranges are sold in a bag of 5 for $2. The ratio of oranges to their cost is 5:2 or . If I bought 20 oranges, I could set up a proportion to determine my cost.

    Proportional relationships is the relationship between two ratios that are proportional. It's pretty self-explanatory. And the graph looks like a parabola because the values increase proportionally.
