## CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.3 - Use ratio and rate reasoning to solve real-world and mathematical problems, e.g., by reasoning about tables of equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double number line diagrams, or equations.

## CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.3.a - Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.

## CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.3.b - Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. For example, if it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours? At what rate were lawns being mowed?

## CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.3.c - Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.

## CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.3.d - Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units; manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities.
