Chapter 6 Lesson 1 Ratios and Rates Pgs What you will learn: Write ratios as fractions in simplest form Determine unit rates

Vocabulary Ratio (264): a comparison of two numbers by division. Ratios can be written in the following three ways: 2 to : 4 Remember that a fraction bar represents division. When the First number being compared is less that the second, the ratio Is usually written as a fraction in simplest form. Rate (265): a ratio of two measurements having different kinds of units. Ex) 65 miles in 3 hours miles and hours are different kinds of units \$16 for 2 pounds Dollars and pounds are

Unit Rate (265): when a rate is simplified so that it has a
denominator of 1. Ex) \$5 per pound, which means \$5 per 1 pound Example Uno: Write Ratios as Fractions Express the ratio 9 goldfish out of 15 fish in simplest form 9 = Divide the numerator and denominator by the GCF, 3 The ratio of goldfish to fish is 3 to 5. This means that for every 5 fish, 3 of them are goldfish

When writing a ratio involving measurements, both quantities
Should have the same unit of measure. Example Dos: Write Ratios as Fractions Express the ratio 3 feet to 16 inches as a fraction in simplest form. 3 feet = inches Here we convert feet to inches 16 inches inches Simplify: inches = 9 inches We divide the numerator 16 inches inches & denominator by the GCF of 4. “Inches” cancel with each other. Written in simplest form, the ratio is 9 to 4.

Example Tres: Find Unit Rate
A package of 20 recordable CDs costs \$18, and a package of 30 recordable CDs costs \$28. Which package has the lower cost per CD? Recall the definition of Unit Rate (265): when a rate is simplified so that it has a denominator of 1. Ex) \$5 per pound, which means \$5 per 1 pound 18 dollars = Divide the numerator and 20 CDs 1 CD denominator of 18 by 20 so the 20 new denominator will = 1 Do the same with the second rate: 28 dollars = Divide the numerator & denomintor 30 CDs CD by 30 to get a denominator of 1.

Now compare the two unit rates:
For the 20-pack, the unit rate is \$.90 per CD. For the 28-pack, the unit rate is \$.93 per CD. So the package that contains 20 CDs has the lower cost per CD. Concept Check: Is \$50 in 3 days a rate or a unit rate? Explain. Since the ratio doesn’t have a denominator of 1, it is a rate.

To convert a rate such as miles per hour to a rate such as feet
per second, you can use dimensional analysis (Lesson 5-3). remember that this is the process of carrying units throughout a computation. Example Cuatro: Convert Rates A grizzly bear can run 30 miles in 1 hour. How many feet is this per second? You need to convert 30 miles to  ft 1 hr s There are 5280 ft in 1 mile and 3600 seconds in 1 hour. 30 mi = 30 mi  5280 ft  3600s Convert feet to miles and hours to seconds 1 hr hr mi hr = 30 mi  ft  1 hr Remember, use the reciprocal when 1 hr mi s dividing fractions = 30 mi  5280 ft  1 hr 1 hr mi s Divide the common factors and units

44 1 = 30 mi  5280 ft  1 hr 1 hr mi s Divide the common factors and units = 44 ft s So, 30 miles per hour is equivalent to 44 feet per second. When working on problems like this, work carefully and logically think through what you are doing!! 120 1

Your Turn!! Express each ratio as a fraction in simplest form. 18 cups to 45 cups 9 pounds to 16 tons (2000 pounds/ton) 155 apples to 75 oranges Express each ratio as a unit rate, round to nearest tenth if needed \$3 for 6 cans of tuna 68 meters in 15 seconds 236.7 miles in 4.5 days 18 = 6 = 2 9 = 9 ,000 155 = 31 \$0.50/can 4.5 m/sec 52.6 mi/day
