COURSE 2 LESSON 5-2

### Unit Rates and Proportional Reasoning

Use the unit price to find the total price: 7 yd of ribbon at \$.39 per yard.

\$.39 • 7

The total price of 7 yd of ribbon is \$2.73.

COURSE 2 LESSON 5-2

### Unit Rates and Proportional Reasoning

Find each unit price. Then determine the better buy.

3 lb of potatoes for \$.89

5 lb of potatoes for \$1.59

Divide to find the unit price of each size.

Since \$.30 < \$.32, 3 lb of potatoes for \$.89 is the better buy.

COURSE 2 LESSON 5-2

### Unit Rates and Proportional Reasoning

1.It took Anthony 5 h 45 min to complete a 25-mi walkathon. What was his average speed in miles per hour? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

2.A 20-lb bag of dog food costs \$21.50. A 30-lb bag of the same dog food costs \$32.90. Find each unit price. Then determine the better buy.
