**drwls**, Monday, February 15, 2010 at 6:26pmIf 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
