WORD PROBLEMS--RATES #2**

**Directions**: Find
the rate in each problem below. There
are several ways to solve *rate problems*. The simplest

strategy is to simply divide the data. The key is to divide the data in the correct order. If the question asks

you to find the *miles/hour*, then you should find the
quotient of the miles divided by the hours, *not*
the hours

divided by the miles.
