I need an answer to the analogy

fifteen:five::nine: ?

  • 5th grade -

    fifteen divided by five is three.
    To complete the analogy, divide nine by three. (Your answer is three)

  • 5th grade (math) -

    If the "analogy" is to preserve ratios on both sides, then the answer is 3. If the analogy is to preserve the difference, the answer is -1.

    This is not a good way to teach fifth grade math, or analogies, in my opinion. The problem would be better stated as
    15/5 = 9/x
