I think a rate is what I’ve always thought of as a unit rate- namely with a denominator of 1. I think I’m more confused though about partitive division versus quotative. In partitive are you breaking the whole into groups of whatever you are dividing by and quotative you are breaking the whole into the number of groups you divide by?
