Unit rate in miles per minute...
Divide miles by minutes
 
(5/8)/(4 1/2) = (5/8)/(9/2) = (5/8)(2/9) = 5/36 miles per minute
 
***************************
This is no different than determining miles per gallon or m/g
which is found by dividing distance in miles by gallons of fuel
 
60 miles driven using 3 gallons of fuel... 60/3 = 20 mpg
