Ontario Curriculum Expectation:

5.F1.5 calculate unit rates for various goods and services, and identify which rates offer the best value.

A unit rate tells how much there is of something per one unit.

For example: $25 per kilogram, or 50 km per hour.

To find the unit rate, we use division. For instance, if there are 24 cupcakes in 4 boxes we need to divide to find out how many cupcakes there are per box.

24 cupcakes ÷ 4 boxes = 6 cupcakes per box
