The flow rate of the gas pump is 2/3of a gallon in 1/9 of a minute,compute the unit rate


Answer 1


The unit rate is 6 gallons per minute.


Given, The flow rate of the gas pump is 2/3 of a gallon in 1/9 of a minute,

We have to compute the unit rate?

We know that, a unit rate describes how many units of the first type of quantity corresponds to one unit of the second type of quantity

Here first quantity is gas and the second quantity is time

\text { Now, unit rate }=\frac{\text { first quantity }}{\text { second quantity }}

=\frac{(2)/(3) \text { of gallons of gas }}{(1)/(9) \text { minute }}=((2)/(3))/((1)/(9))=(2)/(3) * (9)/(1)=2 * 3=6

Hence, the unit rate is 6 gallons per minute.

Tricia wants to create a path using pebbles. She has 8 bags of pebbles and each bag covers an area of about 6 square feet. If she wants to make the path 2 feet wide, about how long can she make the path?


If she wants to make the path 2 feet wide, she can make 24 feet pathlength.

What is a rectangle?

A rectangle is a two-dimensional shape where the length and width are different.

The area of a rectangle is given as:

Area = Length x width

We have,

Number of bags of pebbles = 8 _______(1)

Area covered by each bag = 6 ft²

This can be assumed as,

Length = 3 ______(2)

Width = 2

Area = 3 x 2 = 6 ft²


From (1) and (2)

1 bag makes a 3 feet length


1 bag = 3 feet

8 bags = 24 feet


If she wants to make the path 2 feet wide, she can make 24 feet pathlength.

Using the given points and line, determine the slope of the line. (-3, 0) and (2, 7) slope = -7/5 slope = -5/7
slope = 5/7
slope = 7/5


(-3, 0) and (2, 7)

slope = (7 - 0) /(2 +3)

slope = 7/5


slope = 7/5
