Rate equations

Hi, I need some help with the rate equation in the attachment. I can see that [A] is first order but when I try to calculate [B] it comes up as a decimal. Any ideas?

thanks

A is closer to 2nd order and B is 2nd order. Double concentration => 4x increase in rxn rate => 2nd order rxn.
