what math teacher made up this question?
Glenn needs 20 minutes to clean his room. If his little sister Veronika pulls things out while he is cleaning, it takes 60 minutes for him to clean the room. How many minutes does it take for Veronika to pull everything out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why do they want 30 minutes though? just get a vacuum cleaner and get rid of all the junk in the room. Takes 5 seconds XD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know it is 30 minutes because of the answer choices given they want the solution to \[\frac{1}{20}\frac{1}{x}=\frac{1}{60}\] as if that has anything to do with it right to the "bad math" pile

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then rate of destruction is \(\frac{1}{x}\) and if you subtract you get the rate of \(\frac{1}{60}\)
