A faucet drips 23 gallon of water in 10 hours.

Which rate is the unit rate of water dripped per day?

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.

you would be wasting 57.5 gallons of water each day.

Step-by-step explanation:tell me if you want an explanation

55.2 gallons/day

Step-by-step explanation:

There are 2.4 ten-hour periods in one day, so the total number of gallons per day is ...

(2.4 periods/day)(23 gallons/period) = 55.2 gallons/day
