What Is the Unit Rate?

  • A rate compares two quantities with different units. It can be written as a fraction or a ratio.
  • A Unit rate is the rate of one of a quantity compared to another quantity.
  • Usually two different measures are compared, e.g. miles in an hour, number of words in a minute, number of objects in a pack, etc.
  • Unit rates can also be thought of as a ratio with a denominator (or consequent) of 1. The unit rate is the value of the numerator.
  • Unit rates are useful because they can be used to compare different sets of rates and decide which is the best/most efficient/fastest/slowest etc.
