Last weekend, Amy raked leaves in her front yard. She noticed that 11/3 pounds of leaves filled 4/9 of a bag. What is the unit rate for pounds of leaves per bag?

You are given LB and BAG and you want LB/BAG

11/3 LB / 4/9 BAG = 11/3 * 9/4 = 99/12 LB/BAG = 8 1/4 LB / BAG

Here's a little tip: **per means divided by**.

When you see the word "per" substitute "divided by"

so lbs per bag means 11/3 divided by 4/9 in this problem.
