would you do a rate formula or what?

I'm really stuck on this one!

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, May 20, 2008 at 6:09pmIf it takes you 4 minutes to make one slice (12/3 = 4), then it should take 4 times 6 to saw a similar log into 6 pieces.

4 * 6 = 24

first of all, cutting 2 slices of a log will make it into 3. if it took 12 minutes to cut 2 slices into 3, it takes 6 minuts to cut a slice.

Now taking the same log, you need 6 pieces. so cutting 3 more times in addition to the first two would mean 30 mins.

2 slices = 3 pieces

from 3 logs, 3 slice = 6 pieces

5 slice x 6 minutes each = 30 mins

**tchrwill**, Tuesday, May 20, 2008 at 7:10pm2 cuts = 3 pieces

1 cut = 6 minutes.

5 cuts = 6 pieces

5 cuts = 30 minutes.

Right on Chris.
