63. Ron walks 0.5 miles on the track in 10 minutes. Steve walks 0.25 miles on the track in 6 minutes. Question : Find the unit rate of each walker and identify who walks faster, Ron => 0.5 miles for 10 minutes => 0.5 miles / 10 minutes = 0.05 miles per minute or 0.05 miles/minute Steve => 0.25 miles in 6 minutes => 0.25 miles / 6 minutes = 0.042 miles per minute or 0.042 miles/minute Thus, Ron walks faster than Steve.

0.5 miles/ 10 minutes* (60 minutes/ 1 hour)= 3 miles/hour. 0.25 miles/ 6 minutes* (60 minutes/ 1 hour)= 2.5 miles/hour. The unit rate of Ron is 3 miles/hour. The unit rate of Steve is 2.5 miles/hour. Therefore, Ron walks faster~
