# Write the ratio as a unit rate

27 miles in 1/2 hour

A:13.5 miles per hour

B:44 miles per hour

C:54 miles per hour

D:56 miles per hour

My answer is B

## It’s actually C.54 Miles Per Hour.

## To write the ratio of 27 miles in 1/2 hour as a unit rate, we divide 27 by 1/2.

27 ÷ 1/2 = 27 × 2

= 54

Therefore, the unit rate is 54 miles per hour.

The correct answer is C: 54 miles per hour.

## To find the unit rate, you need to divide the total miles (27) by the time in hours (1/2).

The ratio 27 miles to 1/2 hour can be expressed as:

27 miles ÷ 1/2 hour

To divide fractions, you can invert the second fraction and multiply:

27 miles × 2/1 hour

Simplifying the expression:

(27 × 2) miles / 1 hour

54 miles / 1 hour

Therefore, the unit rate is 54 miles per hour.

Your answer, B, is correct.
