Unit rates are a special type of rates: those where the numerator or, more usually the denominator, of the rate is 1.

A unit = 1 = 1/1 in fraction form.

if you have mixed numbers you make them into improper fractions before you multiply

You add two fractions with a different denominator by multiplying the denominators by a number that will make them equal. Be sure to multiply the numerator by that number too.

Unit fractions all have the same numerators but the denominators can be different.

Fractions are alike if they have the same denominators; otherwise they are different.

All of them have a numerator of 1.

They are not alike, they are different, but they can be identical in value. Example :- 3/4 and 0.75 are different ways of expressing the same quantity and they are not alike at all.

Unit fractions are those fractions where the numerator is 1. Thus they are different to whole numbers in that when whole numbers are written as a fraction the 1 is in the denominator whereas in a unit fraction the 1 is written in the numerator.

they are both fractions

Well as a matter of fact Egyptian fractions can only be unit fractions with different denomitnators. They will never do 1/2+1/2=1 instead they would us the mehod /i explained.

Unit rates are a special type of rates: those where the numerator or, more usually the denominator, of the rate is 1.

They have the same numerator (1) but different denominators. Since the numerator is 1 in each fraction, it cannot be simplified therefore each unit fraction is in its simplest form. Then, because the denominators of any two of them are different the fractions must be different.

Fractions and decimals are alike because you can make a fraction into a decimal (here's an exanple; 1/2 can be made into 0.5) and vice versa. The only difference is the different forms they are written in; a fraction is written in fraction form and a decimal is written in decimal form.
