# How are unit rates determined?

Divide one quantity by another quantity to get the unit rate.

Generally for this type of problem we are dealing with two given (or calculable) quantities specified in different units.

Unit rates are determined by dividing the quantity of interest (such as distance, time, or cost) by the corresponding unit of measurement. The resulting value represents the rate at which the quantity changes per unit of the chosen measurement. For example, if you traveled 100 miles in 2 hours, the unit rate of your speed would be 50 miles per hour, calculated as ( \frac{100 \text{ miles}}{2 \text{ hours}} = 50 \text{ miles/hour} ).

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.
