What is Rate


A rate is a type of ratio that uses two terms and expresses them in different units.

How to Find Unit Rate

An examples of Rate is listed:

  • 75 cents per 15 ounces OR 75cents/15 ounces (oz)
In order to find the Unit Rate of the Rate, we need to simplify by dividing both 75 and 15 by a number that is divisible by both.

A number that is divisible by both 15 and 75 is 15!

75/15 is 5
15/15 is 1

So, the unit rate is 5 cents per ounce or 5cents/ounce(oz)!
