    I was lying, it's A. You can try using real numbers to see which one logically makes sense. For instance, if p was 10 (so it took her 10 minutes to write a page), you can assume that she can write half a page in 5 minutes. Only one of those answers should give you 1/2. If more than one answer does, try with new numbers. Does that help?

    p = whole = 1 5 minutes = part = fraction of a whole p/5 = part of the whole in 5 minutes...

    think pie :) 1 pie is the whole things; part of the pie is what you get... 1/5 is a part of the whole thing....
