i know this is probably a really simple answer and i'm gonna want to hit my head on a wall after i get it, hopefully, but how would i find a unit rate and then simplify it, if possible? like, 3 pages/5 hours? like the directions just say to write as a rate in simplest form...would 3/5 be in the simplest form? or would i have to find the unit rate? >_<

My guess would be that the unit rate would be something like number of pages per one hour. Does that help? So you would have to find out how many pages per hour.

can someone like DrBob222 look at this?  Emily, Thursday, August 23, 2007 at 10:54pm
No, I think 0.6 pages per hour makes sense...if a teacher could comment on this, it would really help.

Yes, 0.6 page per one hour does make sense. You could also have a unit rate if we did it the other way. 5/3 would be 1.67 hours per one page. From the question I can't tell which one you prefer but I think either would be ok since both are unit rates. One is the rate of pages/hour and the other is the rate of hours/page.
