**bobpursley**, Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 10:31amexamples of ratios are rates:

36miles/gallon

2inches/year

4cups/recipe

546mg Salt/DoubleCheesburger

4inches rise/10ft horizonal

all those are ratios, and rates.

Actually, thinking on it, I cant think of a ratio what could not be a rate.

**Steve**, Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 11:48amwhenever there are not two distinct units, it would not be a rate, since there is no "per" involved

6m/3 = 2m, a length, not a rate

3/7 is a number, not a rate

C/d = pi, a number, not a rate, since both top and bottom have the same unit (length)
