  1. unit rate of water dripped per day is [tex]\dfrac{8}{5}[/tex] or  1.6 gallons.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We fist have to ask ourselves how many 10 hours are in a day— the answer is

    [tex]number\:of\:10\:hours\:in\:a\:day=\dfrac{24\:hours}{day} *\dfrac{1}{10\:hours} =\dfrac{12}{5} =2.4[/tex]

    there are  [tex]\dfrac{12}{5}[/tex] or 2.4 sets of 10-hours in day.

    Now the unit rate of water dripped per day is

    [tex]\dfrac{2/3\:gallons}{10\:hours}*\dfrac{12}{5} = \dfrac{8}{5} =1.6\:gallons/day[/tex]

    unit rate of water dripped per day is [tex]\dfrac{8}{5}[/tex] or  1.6 gallons.
