Rate may refer to any of the following:

1. With money, rate is the price charged for a good or service. For example, with online advertising, the advertising rate is how much a company charges for so many page views or clicks. If a company or individual is popular or in-demand, they may have a higher rate than others.

2. When describing a measurement, the rate describes an amount or quantity related to another value, usually time. For example, a computer monitor may have a refresh rate of 75 Hz, which is how often (e.g., 75) the screen is redrawn every second. In mathematics, the word "per" is used to separate the units of measurement. For example, a monitor's refresh rate could be written as "75 Hz per second."
