Brianna's Growing Post

Hey everyone, I would of done this earlier but well my computer is really bad so... anyways let's get down to math!

Part 1

Mr. H said we had to define Ratio and Rate and we supposed to do a question from pages 60 and 61.

Ratio: The comparison of quantities in the same measurement.

Rate: The measurement of quantities in different measurements.

Question 6 on page 60:

6. Gina earns \$78.00 for working 6 h. Assad makes \$192.50 after working 14 h. Determine each person's unit rate of pay. Who has the greater rate of pay?

Assad has the better pay rate.

Question 10 on page 61:

10. Trevor rode his mountain bike 84 km in 3 h. Jillian rode 70 km in 2.5 h. Who is the fastest cyclist? How do you know?

Trevor and Jillian went the same distance. I know this because when I did the math, it resulted with the same answer.
