Let's calculate it minutes first, then we will convert the answer to hours.

- Thats_Kyy

okay

- Thats_Kyy

Soo Hours=60minutes

- mathstudent55

If she has 17 pages left, and each page has 120 sentences, how many sentences total are there left to read?

- 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.

- Thats_Kyy

2040

- Thats_Kyy

2040 sentences

- mathstudent55

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

- Thats_Kyy

28560

- Thats_Kyy

no

- Thats_Kyy

wait

- mathstudent55

No. The other way around. This time you need to divide.

- Thats_Kyy

okay

- Thats_Kyy

145.7

@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

Now we convert minutes to hours.

- Thats_Kyy

so divide 145.7/60

@Nnesha

- Thats_Kyy

may you please help me out

- Thats_Kyy

what do you mean?

- mathstudent55

Correct. Divide 145.7 by 60 to get hours.

- Thats_Kyy

okay so i do i write and explanation

- Thats_Kyy

do i write the steps

- 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
