If I can run 10 miles in 4 hours how many miles can I run in 90 minutes?
Here´s how to solve this problem, if you do miles/hours then you would do 10/4 and x/1.5 . Then you would cross multiply 1.5 and 10 which equals 15. 1.5x10=4x 15=4x 3.75=x
Here´s how to solve this problem, if you do fries/minutes then you would do 27/1 and x/5 . Then you would cross multiply 27 and 5 which equals 135. 27x5=1x 135=1x 135=x
If I can eat 27 fries in 1 minute, how many fries can I eat in 5 minutes?
