# Unit Rate Calculator

The **simplest** to find the relationship between two **measurements**, quantities, and numbers is through **unit** rate. But the problem is it **involves** a difficult process **from** the basic Mathematical operations that is “**Division**”. So, it is **common** to make mistakes or **find** it difficult to find the **answer** to this ratio.

To make the process **easier** and more accurate at the same time, you should use the **unit rate calculator**. This online maths calculator has been designed for this calculation only. You can **use** it simply by inserting your **values** in the given input **boxes**. Let us show you what this **tool** is and how you **can** do this calculation through a **manual** approach.

## What is the unit rate?

Before you learn **about** the unit rate, you need to understand what the word “**rate**” means in Mathematics. In this **field**, the word “**rate**” shows how a particular **measurement** is related to the other one. As we **know**, it is done by taking the **ratio** between those two measurements or **numbers**.

The **term** unit rate is a particular **type** of relationship in which the **denominator** will become **1** and gives a whole number as the **output** instead of a fraction. In simple **words**, when the denominator will become 1 in the **final** answer, the relationship will be called the unit **rate** between those **two** given measurements.

## Unit Rate Formula

This measurement is **one** of those mathematical terms that **don’t** have a complex formula. You **only** have to find the simple **ratio** in terms of a fraction. Here is the **general** formula for the unit rate.

Unit rate = First Term / Second Term

### How to find the unit rate?

To find the unit **rate**, you only have to **put** the values in the **above** equation. Let us show you an **example** related to this measurement for **better** understanding.

**Example 1:**

What will be the unit rate of 30 to 0.5?

**Solution:**

As we have to find the unit rate of 30 to 0.5, so, 30 will be the first term and 0.5 will be the second term.

So,

Unit rate = 30/0.5

= 60

### How to use the unit rate calculator?

Using this online tool by Calculator’s Bag is pretty simple. Just follow these steps to get the answer to the unit rate.

- Write the first term in the first box
- Write the second term in the second box
- This calculator will automatically show the final answer for the unit rate
