# Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas, and other quantities measured in like or different units.

Example:
• If a person walks 1/2 mile in each 1/4 hour, compute the unit rate as the complex fraction 1/2 over 1/4 miles per hour, equivalently 2 miles per hour.
