Ratios can have the same units (ratios) or different units (rates). The term Ratio can be used for same and different units as well. Special attention to the correct placement of units is key. Ratios are expressed as “for each” and “per”. Ratios have associated rates that relate to the unit ratio. The unit rate is a comparison and does not refer to the units.
The unit rate shows the relationship to 1. Finding unit rate at a constant speed and unit price consists of dividing to find the cost of 1 unit or the constant speed of one unit. Unit Rate reasoning can be used to compare rates of speed and price.
