Math Grade 7 Quiz Representing Proportional Relationships by Equations – 7.RP.A.2.C

In this segment of the Common Core State Standards, students are tasked with understanding how to represent proportional relationships using equations. This involves recognizing that in a proportional relationship, quantities vary in such a way that one quantity is a constant multiple of the other. This constant is often referred to as the ‘constant of proportionality.’ Through the standard, students learn to denote this relationship using equations like t = pn, where ‘t’ represents the total cost, ‘p’ is the constant price per item, and ‘n’ is the number of items.
