Ratio-compares 2 quantites measured in the SAME units.
Rate - Compares 2 quantities measured in DIFFERENT units.
What is the difference between ratio and rate?
RATE is comparing 2 quantities measured in DIFFERENT units while a RATIO compares 2 quantities in the SAME unit.
4. Determine the unit rate in each situation.
a) An orca swims 110 km in 2 h.
b) A Canada goose flies 800 km in 12.5 h.
c) Cathy plants 45 daffodils in 30 min.
c) about 1.5 daffodils a minute
[How I got the answers I made a Ration Table, then I did the usual routine to get the answer.]
10.Trevor rod ehis mountain bike 84 km in
3 h. Jillian rode 70 km in 2.5 h. Who is
the faster cyclist? How do you know?
Trevor and Jillian rode the same speed which was 28km/hr.(I think that's what i got)
[ How I got my answer was i made another Ratio table, then divided 3 by 3 then did it to the othere side which was 84. Then my answer was 28 for Trevor, I did the same routine to Jillian.]
PART # 2
1)What would the recipe look like if it had to serve 10 people? Show your calculations.
-All i did was I multiplied the numbers by 2.5 then that's how i got my answer.
2)What would the recipe look like if you had to only serve 1 person? Show your calculations.
-I did the same thing to this question from the earlier question, but I divided by 10 to get to 1.
