## Question:

The fastest-growing plant on record is a hesperoyucca whipplei that grew {eq}3.7 \ m {/eq} in {eq}14 {/eq} days. What was it's growth rate in micrometers per second?

## Rate:

In mathematics, the rate is defined as the ratio of any value with respect to the time . For example, in physic velocity and acceleration are also the rate, velocity shows a change in velocity with rest to time. Rate is also used to compare to relative things.

Unit rates can be helpful for anyone trying to figure out miles per hour, earnings per year, or practically any other amount of one unit it takes for something to happen in other units. In this lesson, take a look at what a unit rate is, why people use unit rates, finding the unit rate, and an example of unit rates.
