Is the rate limiting step in a reaction always the slowest step?

"The overall rate law is the rate law of the slowest step." So technically yes it is.

Will we ever be expected to answer Rate= with a number rather than Rate=K[Blank]

^only if the rate itself is given. Otherwise, i dont think we need to calculate it.
