sometimes . . .

5 out of 12

as in 5 girls out of 12 students

Ratio

Rate

- a comparison of two

whole numbers in the

same units.

- a comparison of a number

to one in different units.

- always written as a single

number on a per unit basis.

- always written as two

numbers.

- never write the units.

- always write the units.

- reduce to simplify.

- divide to simplify.

Find the unit rate:

1) 84 students in 4 classrooms

2) \$30 for 8 lunches

3) 15,000 cars sold by 2000 dealers

Reciprocal Rates

Reciprocal Rate

The actual distance between North Chicago and Waukegan is 4 mi. What is the distance between these two locations on the map?

Write the scale as a fraction.

Let x be the map distance.

18x = 4

Use cross products to solve.

x ≈ 0.2

The distance on the map is about 0.2 in.
