### Rates

• Rates and Unit Rates are types of ratios. A rate is a ratio that compares quantities measured in different units, such as miles per gallon. A unit rate is the rate for one unit of a quantity.
• To find a unit rate, divide the denominator by itself, and divide the numerator by the same number.
• Comparing unit rates can help you find the better buy when comparing different quantities of the same amount.

### Rates

A car can go 70 miles on 2 gallons of gas. Find the unit rate.
• [(70 miles)/(2 gallons)] = [(m miles)/(1 gallon)]
• [(70 ÷2)/(2 ÷2)] = [35/1]
35 miles per 1 gallon
Unicorns can produce 12 rainbows every 4 hours. Find the unit rate.
• [(12 rainbows)/(4 hours)] = [(r rainbows)/(1 hour)]
• [(12 ÷4)/(4 ÷4)] = [3/1]
3 rainbows per 1 hour
A runner can run 21 miles in 3 hours. Find the unit rate.
• [(21 miles)/(3 hours)] = [(m miles)/(1 hour)]
• [(21 ÷3)/(3 ÷3)] = [7/1]
7 miles per 1 hour
A train travels 2 miles per chunk of coal. How many chunks of coal does a train need to travel 36 miles?
• [(2 miles)/(1 chunk of coal)] = [(36 miles)/(c chunks of coal)]
• [(2 ×18)/(1 ×18)] = [36/c]
c = 18 chunks of coal
Building a fence takes 36 nails. How many fences can be built using 144 nails?
• [(36 nails)/(1 fence)] = [(144 nails)/(f fences)]
• [(36 ×4)/(1 ×4)] = [144/f]
f = 4 fences
Every 33 ounces of frozen yogurt costs \$ 1. How much frozen yogurt can be bought with \$ 0.50?
• [(33 ounces)/\$ 1] = [(y ounces)/\$ 0.50]
• [(33 ÷2)/(\$ 1 ÷2)] = [(y ounces)/\$ 0.50]
y = [33/2] ounces = 16[1/2] ounces
Lisa can type 90 words per minute. How long would it take Lisa to type 450 words?
• [(90 words)/(1 minute)] = [(450 words)/(m minutes)]
• [(90 ×5)/(1 ×5)] = [450/m]
m = 5 minutes
One box of 32 - ounce cereal costs \$ 3.60. Another box of 45 - ounces cereal costs \$ 5.45. Which box of cereal is the better buy?
• [\$ 3.60/(32 ounces)] ≈ [\$ 0.11/(1 ounce)]
• [\$ 5.45/(45 ounces)] ≈ [\$ 0.12/(1 ounces)]
The 32-ounce box of cereal is the better buy.
Joe went to go buy a tub of ice cream. The tub of ice cream was 7 servings, and each serving was 350 calories. Joe ate the whole tub of ice cream. How many calories did Joe consume?
• [(1 serving)/(350 calories)] = [(7 servings)/(x calories)]
• [(1 ×7)/(350 ×7)] = [7/x]
x = 2450 calories
Melissa needs 4 packs of glue for her science project. Should she buy two 2 - packs of glue that cost \$ 2.50 each, or should she buy one 4 - pack of glue that costs \$ 4.95?
• [\$ 2.50/(2 glue sticks)] = [\$ 1.25/(1 glue stick)]
• [\$ 4.95/(4 glue sticks)] ≈ [\$ 1.24/(1 glue stick)]
4-pack
