Damian H's %%%%%'s Rate Growing Post


is comparing 2 different quantities measured in the same units.

Rate is comparing 2 different quantities measured in different units.

Ratio and Rate are different because, rate compares different units and ratio compares the same units.

Page 60 question 5:
What is the unit rate in each ?

a) A blue whale eats 8 tons of krill in 2 days.

b) The cruising speed of a blue whale allows it to travel 193Km in 10 hours.

c) A bull moose bellows 15 times in 2 1/2 hours.


4T/1 day


19.3Km/1 h

2 1/2 hours=150 minutes

1 bellow/ 10 minutes

Page 61 Question 10:
Trevor rode his mountain bike 84 km in 3 hours. Jillian rode 70 km in 2.5 hours. Who is the fastest cyclist ? How do you know ?

Both Trevor and Jillian have the same speed while riding their bikes. I made a ratio table for Trevor so I divided 3 by 3 to get 1 hour, and so I did the same to 84. 84/3= 28. That makes it 28Km/hour. I also made a ratio table for Jillian so I divided 2.5 hours by 2.5 to get 1 hour, so I did it to the other side as well, 70/2.5=28. That makes it 28Km/hour.

Both speeds are the same.


~PART 2~

Hey guys, the blog for today was to take the spaghetti sauce recipe for 4 people and make the recipe enough for 10 people, and again for only 1 person.

In order to get enough for 10 people you would have to multiply the recipe by 2 1/2.

1 1/4 lb ground beef
2 1/2 medium onion diced
2 1/2 celery finely sliced
2 1/2 clove of garlic
35 oz can of tomatoes chopped
1 1/4 can of tomato paste
2 1/2 tsp parsley
3 3/4 tsp basil
2 1/2 tsp oregano
2 1/2 tsp sugar
1 1/4 tsp Worchestershire Sauce
1 1/4 tsp seasoning salt
2 1/2 bay leaf

In order to get enough for 1 person you can divide the original recipe by 4 or you can divide the new recipe by 10.


1/8 lb ground beef
1/4 medium onion diced
1/4 celery finely sliced
1/4 clove of garlic
3.5 oz can of tomatoes chopped
1/8 can of tomato paste
1/4 tsp of parsley0
.375/7.5ml tsp of basil
1/4 tsp of oregano
1/4 tsp of sugar
1/8 tsp of Worchestershire Sauce
1/8 tsp of seasoning salt
1/4 bay leaf
