Answer:
[tex]3 \frac{3}{4}[/tex]
Stepbystep explanation:
To find the unit rate, the only thing you need to do to find the unit rate is to divide the two values we have. In this case, the two values represent the square yards and the speed in which the action is done.
[tex]\frac{5}{4} : \frac{1}{2} = \frac{5}{4} * \frac{3}{1} = \frac{15}{4} = 3 \frac{3}{4}[/tex]
