Holly works in a stable. She's throwing straw into a stall that's 12 feet long by 8 feet wide. If she throws 12 cubic feet of straw each minute, how many minutes will it take until the straw in the stall is 2 feet deep?

    12 x 8 x 2 is the number of cubic feet of straw she must throw.

    She throws 12 cubic feet each minute so divide the number of cubic feet by 12 and that will be the number of minutes.
