    Roni did not make use of the equation for a proportional relationship.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    For some constant of proportionality k, y is proportional to x if x and y satisfy the equation ...

    y = kx

    Roni knows k=7/25, but she did not use this equation. She added instead of multiplying, so did not end with an equation expressing a proportional relation.


    y = (7/25) x
