How do you do rates and unit prices and what is the process for doing this types of problems

Do you have a specific problem?

if all the horizontal lines are parallel , what is the value of x?

for rates:
25 miles/5 hours = 5 miles/1 hour
To get a unit rate, the denominator
must be 1.

for horizontal lines:
Any horizontal line's equation would
be y = y-intercept. A y-intercept is
the point where the line crosses the
y-axis. The value of x is infinite,
but it is not written in the equation.
