#### 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.

#### 6.RP.A.3a

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.
6.NS.5
Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values; use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.
6.EE.2c
Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems.
1. Speed, Time and Distance:
 Speed = Distance , Time = Distance , Distance = (Speed x Time). Time Speed
