Rate- compares 2 quantities measured in

__different__units.__same__units.

What is the difference between ratio and rate?

Rate is comparing 2 quantities measured in different units, when a ratio compares 2 quantities in the same unit.

1. What would the recipe look like if it had to serve 10 people. Show your calculations.

All you have to do to find a serving amount for 10 people instead of 4, is to multiply all the original numbers by 2.5.

Ground beef - 0.5 x 2.5 = 1.25 lb

Medium Onion diced - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5

Stalked celery finely diced - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5

Clove garlic minced - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5

Canned tomatoes chopped - 14 oz x 2.5 = 35 oz

Canned tomato paste - 0.5 x 2.5 = 1.25

Parsley - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5 tsp

Basil - 1.5 x 2.5 = 3.75 tsp

Oregano - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5 tsp

Sugar - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5 tsp

Worcestershire Sauce - o.5 x 2.5 = 1.25 tsp

Seasoning Salt - o.5 x 2.5 = 1.25 tsp

Bay leaf - 1 x 2.5 = 2.5

2. What would the recipe look like if it only had to serve 1 person. Show your work.

To find out how much ingredients you need for a serving for 1 person, since you already have the calculations for the serving for 10 people, just divide those answers, and whatever it equals to, that's the amount of stuff you need for a serving of 1 person.

Ground beef - 1.25 / 10 = 0.125 lb.

Medium Onion diced - 2.5 / 10 = 0.25

Stalked celery finely diced - 2.5 / 10 = 0.25

Clove garlic minced - 2.5 / 10 = 0.25

Canned tomatoes chopped - 35 oz / 10 = 3.5 oz.

Canned tomato paste - 1.25 / 10 = 0.125

Parsley - 2.5 / 10 = 0.25 tsp

Basil - 3.75 / 10 = 0.375 tsp

Oregano - 2.5 / 10 = 0.25 tsp

Sugar - 2.5 / 10 = 0.25 tsp

Worcestershire Sauce - 1.25/10 = 0.125 tsp.

Seasoning Salt - 1.25 /10 = 0.125 tsp.

Bay leaf - 2.5 / 10 = 0.25

Good Job! Showing your work is important to show that you fully understand a problem and how to get the answer.
