    You could do this with fractions. I’ll do decimals later.

    d = 3/4 mile
    t = 2/3 hour
    r = ????

    r = 3/4 // 2/3 Invert and multiply the denominator
    r = 3/4 * 3/2 = 9/8 = 1 1/8

    If your calculator handles fractions, you can use it to do this. If not you can change this to a decimal.
    d = 3/4 = 0.75 miles
    t = 2/3 hour = 0.666666666 hours.
    r = ???

    d = r*t
    r = d/t
    r = 0.75 / 0.66666667
    r = 1.125 miles / hour
    which gives you exactly the same answer 1.125 = 1 1/8

    Answer:

    1 1/8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    3/4= 0.75

    2/3 = 0.666666667 so on…

    divide and you get 1.125 which is also written as 1 1/8
