## Answers ( No )

Step-by-step explanation:

1. Let’s call:

yellow pencils.

: blue pencils.

2. You know that Shawna found out there are 4 yellow pencils for every blue pencil, therefore, you can make the following expression based on this information:

3. Therefore, if there is 1 blue pencil, subtitute into the equation and you obtain:

(There are 4 yellow pencils)

4. If there are 2 blue pencils, then and:

(There are 8 pencils)

The equation for this situation is, y =4x

Step-by-step explanation:

Unit rate is defined as the rates are expressed as a quantity 1 such as 5 miles per hour or 4 meter per second.

As per the given statement: Shawna found out there are 4 yellow pencils for every blue pencil.

⇒ for every blue pencil there are 4 yellow pencils.

Unit rate per blue pencil(m) = 4 yellow pencils

Let y represents the yellow pencils and x represents the blue pencils.

The equation of line is given by;  y =mx

where m is the slope or unit rate.

Substitute the value m = 4, we get;

Therefore, the equation for this situation is, y =4x
