Finally! I can get a couple cupcakes.
May I take your order?
Yup! 2 cupcakes, please.
Yes, Ma'am. That would be $6.
Hmm... If two cupcakes are $6, how much would one cupcake be? This is called the unit rate.
All you have to do to find the unit rate is divide the denominator by itself, and then divide the numerator by the denominator.
For example, since 2 cupcakes are $6, it is 6/2. Now, you simplify so that the denominator is one. Now you find the unit rate is $3/1 cupcake.
Thank you! Finding the unit rate is really easy!
Here you go, Ma'am. Two weird looking cupcakes.
