to convert a fraction to a decimal, you simply divide the numerator by the denominator.  rate: a ratio that compares two quantities having different units of measure unit rate: a unit rate describes how many units of the first type of quantity corresponds to one unit of the second type of quantity. examples: miles (or kilometers) per hour, cost per item, earnings per week, etc. hope this helps!!


1.) A rate is when you compare 2 different measurements, for example: 60 miles per 3 hours A unit rate is when you compare only one, for example: 30 miles per hour You can convert a rate into a unit rate by dividing so you can simplify it. 2.) You can convert a fraction into a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator.
