The table shows the number of miles driven over time.

Time|Distance
4 |184
6 |276
8 |368
10 |460

Express the relationship between distance and time in simplified form as a unit rate. Determine which statement correctly interprets this relationship.

a. 184; your car travels 184 miles
b. 46/1; your car travels 46 miles in 1 hour<---my answer
c. 1/46; your car travels 46 miles in 1 hour
d. 4; your car travels for 4 hours

I think it's b, but I'm not 100% sure. Please help me whenever you get the chance. I will be patient :). Thank you!

1. The answer is C.

The common ratio in the table is .0217
You can determine this by just taking the time and dividing it by the distance.

Now you do the same for your answer choices. The only answer with the same ratio as the table is C because 1/46 = 0.217

3. Ah, hmmmm
1/46 is hours/mile

but 46/1 is miles/hour

which is a unit rate.

B and C are really the same, but I think B is the answer they want
