Why would we need to learn how to properly use proportions?  How can it help you out in your personal life and your work life?  Do you think it is important to know about them?  Why or why not? 

Answer 1: When we think of proportion, this means we are putting two or more things in relation to each other or to something else. This can help us in life and career especially in business to see what aspects need more work and what we are doing wrong. It can also give us an idea of what happens if we make changes to one side of the proportion.

Answer 2: Proportion is something that is part of something else in relation to it. We need to know this in our life because we see it every day. When we compare our income and our expenses for example, we see the proportion of the money we are spending to the money we are saving. And it can apply in many things other than that too.
