4.5 miles per hour

Step-by-step explanation:

Selma uses a jogging trail that runs through a park near her home. The trail is a loop that is 3/4 of a mile long. On Monday, Selma ran the loop in 1/6 of an hour. What is Selma’s unit rate in miles per hour for Monday’s run?

Distance = 3/4 of a mile

Time taken on Monday = 1/6 of an hour.

What is Selma’s unit rate in miles per hour for Monday’s run?

Unit rate in miles per hour for Monday’s run = distance ÷ time taken

= 3/4 ÷ 1/6

= 3/4 × 6/1

= (3 * 6) / (4 * 1)

= 18/4

= 4.5 miles per hour

Unit rate in miles per hour for Monday’s run = 4.5 miles per hour
