Math Grade 8 Quiz Graphing Proportional Relationships – 8.EE.B.5

Proportional relationships describe how two quantities change in relation to one another. When graphed, these relationships form straight lines that pass through the origin, and the slope (or steepness) of the line represents the unit rate of the relationship. Understanding how to interpret and compare these slopes is crucial for making sense of real-world situations, such as determining speeds from distance-time graphs.
