What is a Unique Rate of Reaction? HW #3, 6th Edition

$aR \to bP, Rate = -\frac{1}{a} \frac{d[R]}{dt} = \frac{1}{b}\frac{d[P]}{dt}$

What is a Unique Rate of Reaction? HW #3, 6th Edition

In problem #3, part c asks to find the unique rate of the reaction, but I don't understand what the unique rate of reaction is. How are you meant to calculate it?

Thanks y'all!

I think the unique rate of reaction is in the form:
-1/a * dA/dt = 1/b * dB/dt = 1/c * dC/dt for an equation like aA --> bB + cC
