Ratios are a comparison of two different amounts using the word "to", a colon (:), or a fraction. Ratio fractions can be reduced just like a regular fraction. They are used to describe relationships.
Rates measure amounts or the frequency of something such as prices, speed, value, etc. A unit rate measures something against the number one. Often, the word "per" is used when explaining a unit rate. Per means "one" or "each". In fact, the word "unit" also means "one" or "per" or "each".
Check out the videos and images below for more information on ratios and rates. As always, thanks for stopping by!
