Answer:

The filling speed of the aquarium is 1/5 meters per minute.

Step-by-step explanation:

Since it takes 1 4/5 minutes to fill an empty aquarium to a depth of 3/8 meters, to determine the unit rate in meters per minute, the following calculation must be performed:

4/5 = 0.8

3/8 = 0.375

1.8 = 0.375

1 = X

(1 x 0.375) / 1.8 = X

0.20 = X

0.20 = 1/5

Therefore, the filling speed of the aquarium is 1/5 meters per minute.
