45,in/2mi =0.375/1mi. How did i get this

4. shinigami1m

maybe u know the answer since u got it...

5. luchiananami

Show work

6. luchiananami

No the teacher wants us to explain how to get it

Try phrasing your questions from your point of view, instead of just typing in the problem you are working on.

8. luchiananami

huh

Hint: You have a fraction with different units. What are you trying to determine using this fraction?

10. shinigami1m

is it 45in / 2 mile? then becomes 0.375/mile?

11. shinigami1m

.375 what units?

13. luchiananami

hrs

I don't understand the nature of your question. What are you trying to do?

15. luchiananami

Im trying to find the equivelant rate

16. luchiananami

.

17. shinigami1m

she is finding that missing unit

You haven't asked a coherent question. Please express what you are trying to do, what you have done so far, and where you are stuck. Also, please provide the entire problem statement *accurately typed*. I think there are typos in your statement of the problem (45,in/2mi =0.375/1mi. How did i get this).

Shinigami, I think there is an error in the units on the 45 - maybe a time unit instead of inches should be there?

20. shinigami1m

yeah... because it doesnt make sense since lenth/length... ¬¬

@luchi are you there?

22. luchiananami

yea

23. luchiananami

\[45\min/2mi=0.375/1mi\]

What are you asked to do with this equation? Are you also given the units for the .375 term?

The first step in solving a problem is understanding the problem. Help me understand this problem.

I can see that you have some given information. You stated part of the problem the first time that implied you have a complete equation and your teacher wants you to show the steps to transform the LHS into the RHS, and another part of the problem the second time that appears to show some given information. But not the units on one of the terms, which you said in a third place is hrs. You really cannot expect people on this forum to read your mind, and perform a research project to formulate a guess as to what you are trying to do. State your request, explain the problem accurately, and make it clear what you are stuck with or what you have so far, and what you want help with.
