4-60.

Is the relationship shown in the table at right proportional? If so, use it to complete a Proportions Web. If not, explain why it is not.

For the relationship to be proportional, there must be a steady rate at which dirt is excavated that begins with

yards excavated after

Yes, this relationship is proportional, since the amount of dirt excavated divided by the hours worked is a constant ratio.

Now write the equation for this relationship and then graph it.

Hours Worked | Amount of Dirt Excavated |
---|---|
