### Eureka Math Grade 6 Module 1 Lesson 1 Example Answer Key

Example 1.

The coed soccer team has four times as many boys on it as it has girls. We say the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls on the team is 4: 1. We read this as four to one.

Answer:

→ Let’s create a table to show how many boys and how many girls could be on the team.

Create a table like the one shown below to show possibilities of the number of boys and girls on the soccer team. Have students copy the table into their student materials.

# of Boys | # of Girls | Total # of Players |

4 | 1 | 5 |

→ So, we would have four boys and one girl on the team for a total of five players. Is this big enough for a team?

→ Adult teams require 11 players, but youth teams may have fewer. There is no right or wrong answer;

just encourage reflection on the question, thereby having students connect their math work back to the

context.

→ What are some other ratios that show four times as many boys as girls, or a ratio of boys to girls of 4 to 1?

→ Have students add each ratio to their table.

# of Boys | # of Girls | Total # of Players |

4 | 1 | 5 |

8 | 2 | 10 |

12 | 3 | 15 |

→ From the table, we can see that there are four boys for every one girl on the team.

Suppose the ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls on the team is 3: 2.

Answer:

Create a table like the one shown below to show possibilities of the number of boys and girls on the soccer team. Have students copy the table into their student materials.

# of Boys | # of Girls | Total # of Players |

3 | 2 | 5 |

→ What are some other team compositions where there are three boys for every two girls on the team?

# of Boys | # of Girls | Total # of Players |

3 | 2 | 5 |

6 | 4 | 10 |

9 | 6 | 15 |

→ I can’t say there are 3 times as many boys as girls. What would my multiplicative value have to be? There are ________ as many boys as girls.

Encourage students to articulate their thoughts, guiding them to say there are \(\frac{3}{2}\) as many boys as girls.

→ Can you visualize \(\frac{3}{2}\) as many boys as girls?

→ Can we make a tape diagram (or bar model) that shows that there \(\frac{3}{2}\) are as many boys as girls?

Boys

Girls

→ Which description makes the relationship easier to visualize: saying the ratio is 3 to 2 or saying there are 3

halves as many boys as girls?
