Jolie can read around 14 sentences per minute of her current novel. She wants to finish her reading before the movie comes out next week. If she has 17 pages left to read and each page has about 120 sentences, how many hours should Jolie set aside to complete her reading?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes. We will use 1 hour = 60 minutes at the end to convert to hours, but let's find the number of minutes first.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Good. She has to read 2040 sentences. She takes 1 minute to read 14 sentences. 2040 sentences is how many times 14 sentences?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3No. The other way around. This time you need to divide.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Good. Since 2040 is 145.7 times 14, that means she needs 145.7 times 1 minute. That means she needs 145.7 minutes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3You write: She needs to read 17 pages with 120 sentences in each page. 17 * 120 = 2040 She needs to read 2040 sentences. She reads 14 sentences in 1 minute. 2040/14 = 145.7 minutes. She needs 145.7 minutes. 1 hour = 60 minutes 145.7/60 = 2.4 hours
