KEY TERMS


Rate – a ratio of two quantities using different
units
Unit Rate - compares a quantity to one unit of
another quantity


Common unit rates are miles per gallon, miles per
hour, words per minute, \$ per pound
Equivalent rates – rates that are the same
UNIT RATES – RATE FOR ONE UNIT


To find a unit rate, divide the first quantity by
the second quantity.
a units : b units
=a

EQUIVALENT RATES

How can you determine if two rates are
equivalent?

See if the unit rates are the same.
24 laps in 6 minutes
 72 laps in 18 minutes

WHICH BAG OF DOG FOOD IS THE BETTER

A 20 pound bag for \$17.20 or a 30 pound bag for

RATIO TABLES
How can you find
two ratios that
describe the same
relationship?
EQUIVALENT RATIOS AND RATIO TABLES

Equivalent Ratios – Two ratios that describe the
same relationship.

Equivalent ratios can be found by


adding and subtracting quantities in equivalent ratios
multiplying or dividing each quantity in the ratio by the
same number.
