Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To utilize 25% of her daily intake calories she will need to burn:\[0.25*2000kcal=500kcal\] You're given her rate of calorie burning in J/min...so convert that to kcal/min knowing that 1kcal is about 4200J: \[\frac{42,000 \cancel{J}}{min}*\frac{1kcal}{4200\cancel{J}}=10kcal/min\] Therefore, at 10kcal/min it will take her: \[\frac{500kcal/min}{10kcal}=50min\] So it will take her 50 minutes...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I posted that last fraction incorrectly...it should have been:\[\frac{500kcal}{10kcal/min}=50min\]
