CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.RP.A.3.A
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.

Students are given a ratio and are asked to fill in a ratio table. They are expected to use the ratio and/or table to extend the values to a larger number.
