To find the unit rate, we need to set the number of days to 1. Therefore, we will divide by 7. We also have to divide 42 by 7 to make sure the equation stays proportional. Using this knowledge, we can see that if the corn grew 42 inches in 7 days, it grows 6 inches per day.

1 week = 7 days 42 inches per week We want to find out how many inches grow per day. 42 / 7 = 6 So, everyday the corn grows 6 inches.
