Javier scored 30 goals in 15 soccer games. Using the unit rate, how many goals will he score in 20 games?

Ms. Sue
What is the unit rate?
How many goals per game? 
Amy
Ms. Sue that is all the word problem said. I typed it just like it is on the paper. Will I be able to still work it out or do I need more info?

Ms. Sue
You can figure out the unit rate. The unit rate is the number of goals Javier scored per game.

Amy
Do I divide 30 into 20?

Ms. Sue
Why 20? He's only played 15 games.

Amy
Do I divide 15 into 30

Ms. Sue
Yes.
I'm surprised you can't see that 30 goals in 15 games gives a unit rate of 2 goals per game.
