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?

If she has 17 pages left, and each page has 120 sentences, how many sentences total are there left to read?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Yes. We will use 1 hour = 60 minutes at the end to convert to hours, but let's find the number of minutes first.

Good. She has to read 2040 sentences. She takes 1 minute to read 14 sentences. 2040 sentences is how many times 14 sentences?

@mathstudent55

  • mathstudent55
Good. Since 2040 is 145.7 times 14, that means she needs 145.7 times 1 minute. That means she needs 145.7 minutes.
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Now we convert minutes to hours.
Thats_Kyy
  • Thats_Kyy
so divide 145.7/60

mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
You 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
