    no it is not.... if it said 99 cents for 1 pencil, it would be unit rate....telling you how much 1 unit (pencil) cost

    not d .....it would have to say something like 1 magazine for $12.50......not 18 magazines. Take a look at C.. 16 ft per second.......so it is 16 ft for every 1 second. (This is unit rate)
