# One lap around the dirt track is 1/3 mile. It takes Bryce 1/9 hour to ride one lap. What is Bryce's unit rate, in miles, around the track?

Bryce's speed (slow speed I might add) is $3$ miles per hour.

#### Explanation:

$s = \frac{d}{t}$ where $s$ is speed, $d$ = distance and $t$ = time.

Solving for $s$ gives:
$s = \frac{\frac{1}{3}}{\frac{1}{9}}$

$s = \frac{9}{3}$

$s = 3$ miles per hour
