Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes. You would have two terms: The cost per bushel of apples and the cost per basket of pears.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Courtney reads around 110 words per minute. She procrastinated and now has less than a week to finish her reading assignment. If the book she needs to finish has another 820 pages left and each page has around 350 words, how many hours should she set aside to complete her assignment? Show your work to receive full credit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First you need to find how many words she needs to read. If the book has 820 pages and they all have 350 words, you need to multiply 850 and 350 together.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Cool. Next, you need to find how many minutes it takes Courtney to read 297500 words. So take 297500 and divide it by 110 (the number of words she reads per minute).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But the question tries to trip you up by saying, "how many HOURS should she set aside to complete her assignment?"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I'd divide it by 60?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That means you need to divide 2705 by 60 (the number of minutes in an hour)
