## Teaching Solving Comparing Unit Rates Easily

- Firstly, note down the rates. Then, you may write those as a fraction. For instance a/b.
- Secondly, simplify the denominator to equal 1.
- Lastly, compare the different unit rates and justify your answer.

Let us look at the given example mentioned below to understand more about comparing unit rates.

Q.1 Find the unit rate for the following question. Ratan cuts 7 lawns in 5 hours. How many lawn does he cut in one hour?

Solution:

Step 1: Note down the rate as a fraction.

So,

Ratan cuts = 7 laws / 5 hours.

Step 2: Simplify the denominator to equal 1.

So,

7 lawns / 5 / 5 hours / 5 = 1.4 lawns / 1 hour.

Hence, Ratan cuts 1.4 lawns in an hour.
