Jack spends 2/3s the time Jill did
Multiply 2/3 by 5 1/2 hrs
5 1/2 hrs = 5/2
So (2/3)(5/2)= 5/3
So Jack spends 5/3s hours doing his HW
OR 1 and 2/3s hours
if you want this in minutes multiply 5/3 by 60 and you get 100 minutes which is 1 hour and 40 minutes
Set up an algebra expression..
(Jill)1.5=(Jack) substitute in Jill's time last week
reversely substiute in Jack's time for 2 and solve for jill
