# A skydiver falls 144 feet at 3 seconds. What is the unit rate?

48 feet per second

So we need to change the 3 into 1. We can do this by dividing it by 3. Using the rule: "what you do to the bottom you also do to the top" (this does not work for add or subtract).

Divide the top and bottom by 3

So feet per second

The unit rate of the skydiver's fall can be calculated by dividing the distance fallen by the time it took to fall that distance.

Unit rate (= \frac{\text{Distance fallen}}{\text{Time taken}})

Given: Distance fallen = 144 feet Time taken = 3 seconds

Unit rate (= \frac{144 \text{ feet}}{3 \text{ seconds}})

[= 48 \text{ feet/second}]

So, the unit rate of the skydiver's fall is 48 feet per second.

The unit rate for the skydiver's fall can be calculated by dividing the total distance fallen by the time taken. In this case, the skydiver fell 144 feet in 3 seconds.

To find the unit rate, we divide the distance fallen by the time taken:

Unit rate = Distance fallen / Time taken

Unit rate = 144 feet / 3 seconds

Unit rate = 48 feet/second

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
