# Rate Problems with Fractions

Home | Online Math Tutoring | 7th Grade Math Tutoring | **Rate Problems with Fractions**

A rate is a ratio where we compare two different quantities, which are measured in different units.

Here we are going to discuss how we compare two fractions. We solve rate problems by equating two ratios and then solving them for the unknown variable. See the example below.

*Example:* Donna stitches of a cushion cover in th hour. If she stitches at the same speed, how many cushion covers would she be able to stitch in 4 hours?

Let us assume that Donna can stitch *x* cushion covers in 4 hours.

Then

X

X= = 4.44444…

Donna stitches *4.44* cushion covers in 4 hours.

*Example: *If Joshua ate sandwiches in minutes, then how many sandwiches did he eat per minute?

Let us assume that Joshua ate *N* sandwiches per minute.

Then : *N* = : 1

÷ *N* = ÷ 1 => × =

= *N* = ** sandwich**

Joshua ate th of a sandwich in one minute
