## (3/10)/(7/8) = x/1

(7/8)x = (3/10)

x = (3/10) / (7/8)

x = (3/10) * (8/7)

x = 24/70 = 12/35 inch per mile

## To convert the map scale to unit rate, we need to find out how many inches represent one mile. In this case, we have the ratio 3/10 in. = 7/8 miles.

To find the unit rate, we need to express this ratio with a denominator of 1. We can do this by multiplying both sides of the equation by the reciprocal of the fraction on the left side. The reciprocal of 3/10 is 10/3.

(3/10 in.) * (10/3) = (7/8 miles) * (10/3)

On simplifying, we get:
1 in. = 35/24 miles

So, the unit rate is 1 inch represents 35/24 miles.

The unit rate signifies the amount of one quantity in relation to another quantity, with a denominator of 1. In this case, the unit rate tells us that for every inch on the map, there is an equivalent distance of 35/24 miles.
