To find a unit rate, you divide the quantity being measured by its corresponding unit of measurement. This means expressing the rate as a ratio of one unit of the quantity to one unit of the measurement. For example, if you traveled 60 miles in 2 hours, the unit rate of your speed would be 60 miles divided by 2 hours, which equals 30 miles per hour (60 miles/2 hours = 30 miles/hour). Similarly, if you bought 4 pounds of apples for $8, the unit rate of the cost per pound would be$8 divided by 4 pounds, which equals $2 per pound ($8/4 pounds = $2/pound).

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.
