# How do you find the unit rate using decimals?

## Related Questions You determine the least to greatest in decimals by using their leftmost unit. The decimal 0.2 is less than 0.3. To determine fractions, you need to first convert them to decimals. grams are unit of measurement expressed using decimals, or Base 10. If you have 5 grams, then 5 is a real number in the decimal numeral system. A gram is a standard weight and the preceding 5 just tells you how many of those standard weights you have. you cannot convert grams to decimals, because grams are expressed using decimals. Imagine you have 20 objects at a cost of \$90. Then the unit rate (the cost of one object) will be found by division. here \$90 ÷ 20 = \$4.50 (the unit price) A unit rate cannot have a remainder. A unit rate is a ration that has the unit as one and the rate has to be equal. If not, you either did a calculation mistake or the ratio is not a unit rate. The unit rate shows how much per 1 item something is or costs. For example: Suzanne has 12 brownies. They total cost \$12.84. What is the unit price? 12.84/12=\$1.07 Therefore, \$1.07 is the unit price/rate When rates are expressed as a quantity of 1, such as 2 feet per second or 5 miles per hour, they are called unit rates. If you have a multiple-unit rate such as 120 students for every 3 buses, and want to find the single-unit rate, write a ratio equal to the multiple-unit rate with 1 as the second term.
