Q:
# There is a contest, it is 2 hours long (120 minutes) during the contest, Annie eats 2 cheese burger every 5 minutes. Juan can eat 5 cheese burgers in 8 minutes. How many cheese burgers will each eat during the entire contest?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Annie eats 48 cheese burgers, Juan eats 75. Step-by-step explanation: You need to find how many intervals fit into 120. Lets start with Annie:So if a total contests time is 120 minutes and we also know that Annie eats 2 burgers every 5 minutes. We simply just need to divide 120 by 5 to see how many times she ate- 120 divided by 5 = 24-> meaning theres 24 times she ate a set of 2 burgers- then you simply multipy 24 times 2 to get 48 cheese burgers Juan:Its the same thing for Juan. - divide 120 by 8 = 15- multiply 15 by how many burgers he ate which is 5, so 5 times 15 = 75 cheese burgers
